“Environmental groups that hailed the Obama administration’s denial of the Keystone XL oil pipeline are now trying to block multiple natural gas projects cropping up along the East Coast.

More than 40 groups launched a campaign called “Keystone the Constitution” to pressure New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) into denying the 124-mile Constitution pipeline, which is proposed to run from Pennsylvania to New York. . . .

The group tapped into the Keystone XL debate because Stop the Pipeline was the first group to fight a natural gas pipeline and hold up the project by empowering landowners. Both the gas pipeline and KXL, she added, are symbolic of grass-roots fights to stop fossil fuel development to halt climate change. . . .”
