350 Action on Biden’s Commitment to Revoke Keystone XL Pipeline Permit

WASHINGTON - Following today’s announcement from presidential candidate Joe Biden that he would revoke the so-called ‘presidential permit’ for the Keystone XL pipeline, 350 Action North America Director Tamara Toles O’Laughlin gave the following response:

“Rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline is the touchstone of any meaningful plan to address the climate crisis. Joe Biden is signaling a willingness to stand up to Big Oil for the benefit of people and the planet. We’ll need just this kind of climate ambition to make way for a livable planet in the next four years. Tribal nations, farmers and ranchers, and many other communities who have resisted Keystone XL for more than a decade know this pipeline would derail all plans for climate survival and adaptation. We need officials at every level of government to take on bold measures necessary to keep fossil fuels in the ground and invest in a renewable energy economy that works for all.”
