San Francisco—In response to today’s ruling from the Nebraska Supreme Court on the proposed pipeline route for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, Rainforest Action Network Climate Program Director Amanda Starbuck issued the following statement:

“This decision does nothing to alter the fundamental facts on Keystone. Not only does the pipeline present dire threats to Indigenous communities, ranchers, and the Ogallala aquifer, it miserably fails the administration’s own climate test. The millions of people who have joined the movement to stop this pipeline are looking to President Obama right now to choose the only option compatible with a stable climate: immediate rejection.”
