Most Americans have never joined a political demonstration.
That’s too bad. Because as I was reminded again last Sunday while joining yet another demonstration, it can be tons of fun.
The rally this time was “Forward on Climate,” a boisterous gathering in Washington, D.C., of 35,000 people, who called on President Obama to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
The future of the pipeline is up to Obama because it would cross the Canada-U.S. border to bring the dirtiest oil on the planet from Alberta to refineries in the southern U.S.
