EPA gives the president everything he needs to reject Keystone

In response to comments by the Environmental Protection Agency released today regarding the State Department’s Final Environmental Impact Statement on the Keystone XL pipeline, Rainforest Action Network Climate Program Director Amanda Starbuck issued the following statement:

“The EPA’s comments today on Keystone XL confirm what we’ve long known to be true: that this pipeline would be an utter disaster for the climate. For a president who has pledged to reject the pipeline if it fails the climate test, these comments should be the final verdict on the matter. We look forward to President Obama heeding the EPA’s words and putting this pipeline to rest once and for all.”
