Bill McKibben, USA Today
A year ago, President Obama sent the Keystone pipeline project back for more review. In the months since, Mother Nature filed compelling public testimony:
- The hottest year in American history.
- An epic drought that drove up the price of food worldwide.
- Superstorm Sandy, with the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded north of Cape Hatteras.
- An Arctic melt so intense that NASA scientists said we faced a "planetary emergency."
