I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

DON'T WORRY THE PIPELINES ARE SAFE



  • The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has imposed an indefinite no-fly zone over the area in Arkansas recently affected by a broken pipeline oil spill. It's sparked concern that the Exxon Mobil oil company may be trying to keep the TV cameras away from the scene.

  • More than one thousand protesters snaked though the mansion-lined streets of San Francisco's Pacific Heights neighborhood yesterday in an attempt to convince Barack Obama, in town for a Democratic party campaign fundraiser at the home of Ann and Gordon Getty, to block the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

  • Ironically Gordon Getty joined the oil business with his father, oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, and eventually sold the family's Getty Oil to Texaco in 1986 for $10 billion.  He is one of the richest men in America.

  • You might remember recently when there was a huge climate change protest at the White House except Obama was not in town.  He was down in Florida playing golf with oil men.  The magician seems to like to hang out with oil big wigs.
