    A shortsighted idea

    Rep. Peter Welch this week vocally opposed federal legislation to weaken environmental review of oil pipelines, like the pipeline that runs through Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom that could be used to pump tar sands oil. He deserves credit for his opposition. Tar sands oil should be left in the ground. Digging up this carbon-intensive fuel is a shortsighted idea for our climate and imperils future generations.
