When I visited New Hampshire for the annual Democratic Party dinner, I made a choice to be the first presidential candidate to oppose the Kinder Morgan Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline. I took this position because as I've said many, many times: climate change is an unprecedented planetary emergency. Fracking natural gas and sending it across the Northeast does nothing to prevent climate change. If anything, it hastens the onset of more climate disasters.
We can take one simple, basic step right now that helps us to get on the path to 100 percent renewable energy: keep fossil fuels in the ground. Here in New Hampshire, that means standing up to Kinder Morgan and their plan to send fracked gas across the northeast and through the Granite State.
I need you to join me in opposing the pipeline. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is closing out its comment period on January 6th, and we want regulators to know people are opposed. We want our movement's commitment to keeping it the ground on the record--no Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline.
I've said this many times: I can't accomplish big victories like stopping the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline on my own. I need you to be involved and work together with all of us to demand a fossil fuel free future. That's why we are building a strong team in New Hampshire: knocking doors, making phone calls, and holding meetings.
We're going to stay focused on winning the New Hampshire primary. And, we're going to stay focused on the issues that matter, too. I'm proud to be running for President to win both the campaign and advocate for real issues in the process. But, we only win when you are involved and active.
Together, we can stop the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline, and help bring us closer to a clean energy economy.
