Rep. Waxman Reaction to Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement of Keystone XL Pipeline

Mar 1, 2013 Issues: Energy & Environment

WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman issued the following statement on the State Department’s release of a draft supplemental environmental impact statement of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline:

“The draft impact statement appears to be seriously flawed.  We don’t need this dirty oil.  To stop climate change and the destructive storms, droughts, floods, and wildfires that we are already experiencing, we should be investing in clean energy, not building a pipeline that will speed the exploitation of Canada’s highly polluting tar sands.”
