350.org Issues Reaction to Nebraska Supreme Court Decision on Keystone XL

Washington, DC — 350.org Executive Director May Boeve  issued the following reaction to the Nebraska Supreme Court’s Decision on the route of the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline:

“President Obama is now free to act and reject Keystone XL outright. No matter the route, as long as the pipeline is carrying tar sands oil it is a global warming disaster and fails the President’s climate test. Today’s House vote is a reminder that oily politicians are going to keep pushing Keystone XL as long as the fossil fuel industry is paying the bills and the pipeline is still on the table. It’s time for President Obama to build on his veto threat and reject Keystone XL outright.

Nebraska has been ground zero for resistance to Keystone XL from the very beginning, and farmers, ranchers and tribal leaders will continue their powerful opposition. We will continue to fight alongside them to the very end.”
