WASHINGTON - League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement in response to the announced delay of a decision on the controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline:

"We strongly applaud the Obama administration’s prudent delay of this dangerous pipeline, which would increase global warming pollution.  It is a big win for our environment, our democracy, and the health and safety of surrounding communities. This pipeline is simply not in the national interest, and ultimately should be rejected."
