In a letter to Secretary of State Clinton earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) criticized the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Reid expressed concern about the potential environmental impact of the pipeline, criticizing “our dependency on unsustainable supplies of dirty and polluting oil.”

As an alternative, Reid suggested investing in clean energy, stating that “the proponents of this pipeline would be wiser to invest instead in job-creating clean energy projects.”

This is the first time Reid has weighed in on Keystone XL, making him the latest high-profile opponent to the controversial pipeline project.
