In response to comments issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the Keystone XL Pipeline, in which the agency advises that “development of oil sands crude represents a significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions,” 350.org Co-Founder Bill McKibben issued the following statement:
“In a city where bureaucrats rarely say things right out loud, the EPA has come pretty close. Its knife-sharp comments make clear that despite the State Department’s relentless spin, Keystone is a climate disaster by any realistic assessment. The president’s got every nail he needs to finally close the coffin on this boondoggle.”
