350.org on Judge Ordering Review of Documents Related to Trump’s Keystone XL Decision

WASHINGTON -

Yesterday, a U.S. District Court Judge ordered that federal officials must review documents related to the Trump administration’s decision to grant a ‘presidential permit’ for the Keystone XL pipeline. 350.org Executive Director May Boeve gave the following response:

“This decision gives us one more reason to believe this pipeline will never be built. The Trump administration’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline has been nothing but smoke and mirrors. The truth is undeniable. Every shred of scientific evidence shows this pipeline is a threat to our climate, and to the lands, waters and lives in its path. The climate movement will continue to oppose dirty and dangerous fossil fuel projects like Keystone XL and demand a just and equitable transition to the fossil free world we need.”

350 is building a future that's just, prosperous, equitable and safe from the effects of the climate crisis. We're an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.
