The opposition to building the Keystone pipeline is shrinking by the day. Another former Obama adviser has come out in favor of building it.

Marcia McNutt, prominent scientist, former head of the U.S. Geological Survey, and now the editor-in-chief of Science magazine writes in aneditorial [subscription required]:

I drive a hybrid car and set my thermostat at 80°F in the Washington, DC, summer. I use public transportation to commute to my office, located in a building given “platinum” design status by the U.S. Green Building Council. The electric meter on my house runs backward most months of the year, thanks to a large installation of solar panels. I am committed to doing my part to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and minimize global warming. At the same time, I believe it is time to move forward on the Keystone XL pipeline to transport crude oil from the tar sands deposits of Alberta, Canada, and from the Williston Basin in Montana and North Dakota to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Former Obama Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon have previously left the administration and then come out in favor of building the Keystone.

Notice how she has to go through her laundry list of paid-for 'indulgences' before just stating the obvious. The only thing standing in the way of Keystone are the climate alchemists.

To: B. Preston:
Suggestion...give J.C. Adams a buzz, since he seems to have a good relationship with Megan Kelly and tip her to this story. Perhaps she'd like to cover it???

Y'think this is gonna get much press coverage? $$ to doughnuts I bet it barely gets more than a mention on FoxNews.

This is just one of hundreds of examples of stories that should be trumpeted and pounded over and over again until (and after) November.
