Fighting the False Choice: Pipelines and Oil Trains in the Age of Trump
Wednesday February 8, 2017 •
This afternoon, we're pleased to be hosting Winona LaDuke, Jane Kleeb, and Matt Krogh in an important webinar. These leaders will be talking about how to combat the oil industry’s spin doctors and how we can keep moving the public and the marketplace to win a just and sustainable energy economy.
RSVP for the webcast here. The webcast starts today, February 8th, at 4pm Eastern (1pm Pacific)
The executive orders from the Trump administration on the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines mark a bitter moment, but we’re far from the end of the story.
While the oil industry holds huge political power, both Indigenous and community leaders have been delaying or denying these and other major projects--and renewables are booming. When the industry says, “We have to move the oil somehow,” these leaders call them on the false choice between oil trains and pipelines and a false future built on fossil fuels.
