Jason Box, Ohio State University climatologist
Box said the tar sands are a pool of carbon as large as that of Saudi Arabia.
“We cannot release this carbon to the atmosphere without locking in additional, dangerous amounts of warming in our climate system.”
Box said now’s the time to have policy that will build a clean energy infrastructure.
“The renewal energy infrastructure that we need can employ millions of Americans in long-term jobs.”
Box said this view is supported by the facts. He said he visited Sherrod Brown’s office to send a clear message against Keystone XL----as a scientist and as a concerned citizen.
