PODCAST: Trudeau’s approval of Kinder Morgan is a form of climate denial

In this new podcast, Cam Fenton of 350 Canada explains that Justin Trudeau’s approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline is a form of climate denial, and incompatible with Canada’s professed support of the UN’s Paris climate agreement.

We can’t build new fossil fuel infrastructure if we’re serious about these commitments. There’s no way to make the math work if you’re going to build a pipeline. Kinder Morgan is being built to not just shift fossil fuels but expand fossil fuel production and to do so not just for months and years but for decades.
