We cannot expand carbon polluting infrastructure and meet targets

Here is a link to my interview with Bloomberg TV's Michael Crumpton on The Bottom Line, explaining that long-lived infrastructure to increase carbon pollution, like the Keystone XL pipeline, is inconsistent with political promises to do what is needed to avoid a greater than 2 C increase in global average temperatures - and explaining that where we shift away from carbon pollution we can create just as many jobs as has been occurring with good news stories around the world.

  1. What if oil supply comes from different locations, further way from media attention, if Keystone XL is not built? I wish preventing pipelines would make people use less oil. I have a hard time understanding why no supply substitution would occur (there are, unfortunately, many places that can produce oil). I have a hard time understanding how a stong climate policy would stem from a pipeline rejection. But of course, I would rather not see this pipeline, or any pipeline.
