The Park Police decided to hold 50 protesters from Saturday's civil disobedience against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline until Monday. They said this was to "deter future participants" in the protests, possibly at the request of the White House according to Ted Glick. The deterrent failed: 52 more protesters were arrested Monday, the third day of the protests, and this will continue as planned all the way to September 3!
Notice to commentors: Global warming denial will get your comments removed, as the consensus of scientists is that climate change is real, is happening now, and that we are the cause of it. There is no further need to debate about climate change, only to do something about it!
