From Mark Fiore’s website:
Keystone XL and tar sands oil are emissions-free wonders that will do everything good you ever thought possible. (At least according to the American Petroleum Institute.) Let’s take a look at the organization that has been lobbying their heart out to get Keystone XL approved.
The environmental review process and the recent announcement by the State Department help reveal the behind-the-scenes work of the American Petroleum Institute. This group is headed by Jack Gerard. You know, the guy who used to head the National Mining Association and the American Chemistry Council. (Chemicals, coal, oil, it’s all the same to ol’ Jack.) Dig a little deeper and you find that API has been spying on environmental groups (okay, paying for “intel“) and has a member-company giving environmental advice to the State Department.
