WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the State Department’s release of the supplemental environmental impact statement for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline:  

“This analysis fails to accurately reflect the devastating impact the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline would have on our already warming climate. People who think our climate wouldn’t be negatively impacted by Keystone XL have their heads in the (tar) sands. The Keystone XL pipeline is inconsistent with President Obama and Secretary Kerry’s many efforts to confront the climate crisis. LCV will work to ensure that the millions of Americans opposed to this dangerous pipeline have their voices heard during the comment period and that Keystone XL is rejected once and for all.”
