A Shot Heard Round the World

"The people of Massachusetts took great risk, for the sake of themselves and their progeny, when they drew a line with the British at Lexington and Concord. It is time for a line to be drawn with the powerful special interests, who reap profits from our fossil-fuel addiction."

James Hansen of NASA nails the Massachusetts Senate for giving a pass to a coal fired power plant up for relicensing. Coal is a greater theat to our environmental health than anything else. It lays waste to our air, laces our fisheries with mercury, makes the planet hotter and makes our climate more volatile and prone to catastrophic local events. Utilities must be held to task and what better place than the Lexington Common?
