Are Dumb Foreign Policies Holding Us Back On Addressing Climate Change?


The New York Times says President Obama has a difficult choice to make on the Keystone XL pipeline decision because the conservative Canadian government is going to be upset with him and might retaliate. But most of the reasons that the Times cites for Obama to be concerned about rejecting the pipeline, from past Canadian support for US war and sanctions policies in Afghanistan and Iran, to whether Canada buys F-35 fighter jets, to replacing Venezuelan oil in Gulf refineries, are about pursuing US foreign policies that the overwhelming majority of Americans have no stake in.

Dumb foreign policies shouldn't trump the interests of the American—and global—public. Tell President Obama and Congress to reject the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.
