WASHINGTON, DC – Today Hillary Clinton announced that she supports the rejection of TransCanada’s permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline. In response, the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund released the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs:
“We are thrilled that Secretary Clinton has continued to build on her longtime environmental leadership by publicly opposing the dirty and dangerous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. This is exactly the kind of leadership we need in order to leave a healthy planet for our children and grandchildren. It is more clear than ever that pumping the dirtiest oil on the planet across America’s heartland so that it can be shipped overseas would take our country in the exact wrong direction. Secretary Clinton’s recent clean energy proposal, coupled with her opposition to drilling in the Arctic Ocean and now to Keystone XL, is both inspiring and exciting.
