Bill McKibben & ~70 Others Arrested

The opposition to the Tar Sands XL pipeline just heated up a notch. Leading environmentalist & founder of 350.org just got arrested, as well as about 70 other folks. Here’s more from the 350.org Facebook page:

Money Pollution: How the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Tries to Screw the U.S.

Following up on my post yesterday on 350.org’s the “U.S. Chamber of Commerce doesn’t speak for me” campaign, Bill McKibben had an excellent post recently that I’ve been wanting to cover.

McKibben tears into the horrendous lobbying record of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which extends much further back than many might realize.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn't Speak for Me — How About You?

Iโ€™ve been saving stories on 350.orgโ€™s โ€œThe U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesnโ€™t Speak for Meโ€ campaign in my โ€œmost important things to get toโ€ box for awhile now — (yes, Iโ€™ve got quite a few things in there).

Anyway, we recently partnered with 350.org to get the word out more on this campaign โ€“ so, it seems like a perfect time to share my thoughts on it with you all (as well as a number of great comments from the 350.org crew and others).
