The Keystone XL pipeline was in Jones’ crosshairs during a speech at the Take Back the American Dream conference on Monday and rallied young environmentalists for their victory over dirty energy, reports The Washington Examiner.

 “They said, ‘we’re not going to let them jab this dirty needle of a pipeline into America. We’re not going to let them take the dirtiest energy ever created and cook it up and stick it into this country,” he said adding “Through their courage, the project was derailed.”

The House Republicans were the next focus.

“(We) watched the hopes of a planet be destroyed by a do-nothing, obstructionist Congress that still has not moved on climate change, that still has not moved on clean energy, that has been stuck on stupid — afraid of science now for three or four years.”

Jones also noted that the GOP had called upon the EPA to be wiped out.

“The EPA, which has probably saved more American lives in the past 30 years than even the Department of Defense. The EPA which is keeping the poison out of our childrens’ bodies.”
