Hundreds of environmental and climate justice advocates rally on Capitol Hill to oppose a deal secured by Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia to complete the controversial Mountain Valley Pipeline.The deal, to transport fracked natural gas 300 miles in Virginia, West Virginia and across the Appalachian trail, was reportedly secured in exchange for Manchin’s support for the Inflation Reduction Act, which was passed and signed into law last month. This side deal adds insult to injury to climate activists, already angered that the Act offers only small fraction of what experts say is needed to address the climate catastrophe.
