WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following Big Oil’s meaningless vote in the Senate today supporting approval and construction of the dangerous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline:  

“Big Oil may have bought themselves this meaningless vote, but the decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline remains where it’s been all along – with Secretary Kerry and President Obama. The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline is all risk and no reward, risking massive oil spills on American waterways so this company can ship oil to places like China.”
