Keystone’s big mystery: What will John Kerry do?

The fate of the Keystone XL oil pipeline is now in John Kerry’s hands — and greens say the secretary of state’s legacy as a climate champion is at stake.

Kerry spent much of his Senate career at the center of the global warming debate, fighting an unsuccessful battle for climate legislation in the face of an often apathetic Congress. He wrote a 2007 book on environmentalism that included a chapter saying we face a “decisive decade” on climate change, and he warns in his speeches that the world is “inviting catastrophe” by ignoring the issue.

Warren Buffett’s 1 Billion Dollar Campaign Contribution


Warren Buffett has fired a proverbial shot that is sure to send GOP leaders shrieking to their favorite conservative media outlets.  In a race already dominated by the spending of billionaires such as Charles and David Koch, Sheldon Adelson and others, Buffet just bigfooted them all. So far, the conservative Super PACs American Crossroads, Restore our Future and Americans for Prosperity have spent about $80 million dollars on the presidential election, far more than the official Romney campaign.

Buffett’s answer: I see your $80 mil and raise you $920 million.* Yes, a cool one billion for the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA Action.

Previously, Buffet was reluctant to inject his money into the race:

“I don’t want to see democracy go in that direction.”

Apparently, we can all presume Mr. Buffet got over his reluctance when he saw all the profits he could make at his railroad…..
Some reporter with a few resources ought to be looking into the source of the donations that support all those environmental groups that are opposed to the deadline and see if they might lead to Mr. Buffet or one on his companies.  Oh wait, the Fourth Estate is no longer independent, it’s left to people like me and you to let the world know what is really going on without the bias of a political agenda.
