The keystone principle and Canada

No new fossil fuel infrastructure: every cent is an investment in death for our kids. This is the emerging line in the sand dictated by the carbon budget science if we are serious in protecting our kids from climate change. Prominent US activist KC Golden has recently articulated the message behind the growing challenge to the Keystone XL pipeline: The Keystone Principle : Stop making it worse. ” Specifically and categorically, we must cease making large, long-term  capital investments in new fossil fuel infrastructure that “locks in” dangerous emission levels for many decades . Keystone is both a conspicuous example of that kind of investment and a powerful symbol for the whole damned category…(T)he Keystone Principle is basic common sense. It’s step one for getting out of a hole: Stop digging.”
