"Re: Keystone XL: The Pipeline to Disaster" [Hake (2013)]. The
abstract reads:

************************************************
ABSTRACT: In his LA Times OpEd "Keystone XL: The Pipeline to
Disaster," James Hansen at <http://lat.ms/16zLDF0> wrote: "In March,
the State Department gave the president cover to open a big spigot
that will hitch our country to one of the dirtiest fuels on Earth for
40 years or more. . . . . A public comment period is underway through
April 22, after which the department will prepare a final statement
to help the administration decide whether the pipeline is in the
'national interest.'. . . . . .THE PERSPECTIVE OF PIPELINE APOLOGISTS
IS CONTRARY TO THE LAWS OF PHYSICS AND BASIC ECONOMICS. . . . [[My
CAPS]]. . . ., neither of which gives a damn about politics. . . . .
. . . All of president Obama's achievements will fade if he doesn't
act swiftly and decisively on climate change. Rejecting keystone is
the first step."

A day before Hansen's OpEd appeared, Bill McKibben in "John Kerry's
Fateful Decision on the Keystone Pipeline" at <http://bit.ly/XsIS7X>
urged people to send Kerry a million public comments at
