Last week, Hurricane Irene forced President Obama to cut short his vacation in New England. Returning to the White House, he passed a crowd of over 100 people risking arrest to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. One can only wonder if the President himself made the connection between the pipeline, due to bring ruinous tar sands oil to the US, and the increased likelihood of extreme weather events like the hurricane which just devastated communities up and down the entire eastern seaboard.
Obama's decision to approve or reject the pipeline is its own perfect storm -- a salient moment that brings together the threads of extreme energy, climate change, and political leadership. Which is why, in this month's messenger, we're asking for folks to step up and be part of the conversation.
