350.org Responds to Energy East Climate Review

Montreal, QC – In response to the announcement that the Energy East pipeline review would now include consideration of the project’s climate impacts, Aurore Fauret, Tar Sands Campaign Coordinator with 350.org issued this response:

“A climate review for Energy East is a good sign that Canada is starting to think about bringing our climate policy into the 21st century. Unfortunately, Justin Trudeau is still championing Kinder Morgan, a project approved with no climate considerations, and cheerleading for fossil fuel billionaires. This is step one, it happened because thousands of people demanded it and those people are still looking for real climate leadership – that means keeping fossil fuels in the ground.”
