A Nebraska woman who led the movement against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline in her state was recently honored by a nonprofit climate-action organization in San Francisco.
We’ve reported in the past how Jane Kleeb started her opposition to the pipeline when the developer revealed plans showing its path through Nebraska.
She formed the group Bold Nebraska and recently became the third U.S. recipient of the Climate Breakthrough Award named after the organization. Kleeb also became chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party
An Indonesian, Gita Syahrani who led groups attempting to accelerate sustainable development in the country is that country’s second recipient.
