Are Environmentalists Getting It Wrong on the Keystone XL Pipeline? – The Atlantic

Are Environmentalists Getting It Wrong on the Keystone XL Pipeline? – The Atlantic.

The characterization of “environmentalists” as only concerned with spills and climate change fails to recognize the environmental justice dimensions to the Keystone XL pipeline.  Indeed, this reflects the historical gap between “environmentalists” and “environmental justice” grassroots activists.  The article fails to examine the local environmental consequences of air emissions at the refineries in Port Arthur and Houston. What about the fenceline communities that already bear an unequal burden of pollution because of the oil industry?  Where are the voices of those communities in DC?  Perhaps it is time to reframe the debate.
