A vitally-needed oil pipeline project, demanded by the vast majority of Americans, has been stymied for years, while the U.S. economy sputters along.  The people want action… but a small group of highly influential environmentalists has made blocking the pipeline into a religious crusade, upon which much of their movement’s prestige has been staked.  Every […] Continue reading →
