RAN Responds to President Biden’s Cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline

In response to widespread reports that President Biden Jr. will cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit on his first day in office, Rainforest Action Network Executive Director Ginger Cassady issued the following statement:

“Today as we celebrate this long delayed victory of people power over the fossil fuel industry, it is important to be clear that truly moving the climate needle forward will require following through on the logic of climate science and Indigenous land rights that makes KXL unacceptable. This means cancelling Enbridge’s equally destructive Line 3 tar sands pipeline, as well as the DAPL pipeline and other oil and gas export projects that would commit our economy to years of future dependence on fossil fuels.”
