Climate and Energy: Testimony to the United States Senate
My testimony to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, including the four charts that I used, is also available on my web site. Discussion at the hearing revealed that most politicians have hardened positions. Hopefully Kerry and Obama recognize that Keystone would signify the full-body dive into unconventional fossil fuels that assures game-over for climate, i.e., assures disastrous climate effects for young people and future generations. Rejection of KXL would provide a brief respite that may allow implementation of a simple flat rising carbon fee-and-dividend approach, which has the potential to go near-global.
