350 Responds to Energy East Delay

April 2, 2015

In response to news that TransCanada is delaying plans for the Energy East pipeline system for two years, 350.org U.S. Communications Manager Karthik Ganapathy issued the following statement:

“Anyone who thinks Canada’s tar sands will get developed with or without Keystone XL should take a look at what just happened to Energy East. It’s clear that TransCanada’s struggling to find ways to get the oil sands to market, and that activism works at keeping carbon in the ground. That’s why Keystone XL matters more than ever — because a rejection now will be a huge blow to tar sands development, and go a long way towards defusing one of the planet’s biggest carbon bombs.”
