Greenpeace Responds to President Obama's Veto of Keystone XL Pipeline Bill

WASHINGTON - In response to President Obama's veto of the Keystone XL pipeline bill, Greenpeace US Executive Director Annie Leonard said:

"In vetoing the Keystone XL pipeline, President Obama is showing that he’s listened to the people, not the polluters. Just this week we’ve seen corporate interests exposed for spending over a million dollars on the science of climate denial. Enough is enough. The State Department needs to put the final nail in the coffin of Keystone XL, so we can focus on the real opportunity ahead: building America’s new, clean energy economy."
