RAN Statement on Obama Administration Denial of Keystone XL Permit Application Suspension Request

RAN Executive Director Lindsey Allen said:

“It is a hopeful sign that Obama has rejected TransCanada’s desperate request to buy more time, but after seven years of drama, enough is enough. The evidence has long been in that this misguided project would be a disaster for the climate and with the eyes of the world turning towards the upcoming global climate negotiations in Paris, it is time for Obama to exercise some real climate leadership and reject the KXL once and for all.”
