350.org Responds to Energy East Review Reset

MONTREAL, QC. - In response to the National Energy Board panel announcement that the Energy East Pipeline review has been voided and must restart, 350.org’s Canadian Tar Sands Campaign Coordinator Aurore Fauret issued this statement:

“Sending the Energy East pipeline back to square one is the first rational thing Justin Trudeau’s government has done when it comes to pipelines. He’s already approved two pipelines, Line 3 and Kinder Morgan, without any real consideration of climate change or Indigenous rights and he’s letting Donald Trump dictate the fate of a third with Keystone. The Energy East review can’t start until Canada has a pipeline review process that listens to communities and respects science, and Trudeau won’t be a climate leader until he learns some basic science, you don’t transition off fossil fuels by building more fossil fuel infrastructure”

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.

350 is the red line for human beings, the most important number on the planet. The most recent science tells us that unless we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, we will cause huge and irreversible damage to the earth. But solutions exist. All around the world, a movement is building to take on the climate crisis, to get humanity out of the danger zone and below 350. This movement is massive, it is diverse, and it is visionary. We are activists, scholars, and scientists. We are leaders in our businesses, our churches, our governments, and our schools. We are clean energy advocates, forward-thinking politicians, and fearless revolutionaries. And we are united around the world, driven to make our planet livable for all who come after us.
