MassLive reporting that, perhaps after seeing Markey up 75-11 among that majority of Democratic primary voters who oppose the Keystone XL pipeline, Steve Lynch is considering “evolving” on the issue. I guess the hippie-punching wasn’t working all that well west of Dot Av.
Mind you, he’s not against it either…yet. He wants to follow “the process” and “make his decision” only after the environmental review is complete. Of course, in early 2012 he said, flat out, “I’m for Keystone pipeline, I think we have the technology, we’ve had it since the 10th century B.C. to make oil run through a pipe.” Oh, it’s that simple? Guess he missed the
eleven twelve spills on the first Keystone pipeline in its short existence.
For the record, I find this about as credible as his sudden support for marriage equality or Roe v. Wade. More like a cynical ploy to blunt some of the opposition from people who care about our planet.
