State Department Claims Keystone XL Pipeline "will not lead to a new increase in greenhouse gases"


By CR - Posted on 04 March 2013

MAR 4, 2013 - In a move that has sent shockwaves through the climate change activist movement, the US State Department has issued their review of the impact that the Keystone XL Pipeline will have on our climate change crisis, and they have concluded that the Keystone XL Pipeline will supposedly "not lead to a new increase in greenshouse gas emissions". Virtually all environmental activists and groups are stunned and saddened by this, for the Keystone Pipeline, and the Tar Sands development, have wreaked havoc on wildlife, the environment, and has a huge impact on our climate change crisis.

President Barack Obama will use this report when he makes the final decision on whether to build this pipeline or not in September. We here at JTMP do NOT support the findings of the State Department, and stand with all environmental activists and groups, and stongly urge President Barack Obama to NOT approve the consruction of this pipeline. The devastating effect on lands from the construction of this pipeline, the Tar Sands development, and the spills that would inevitably happen, cannot be undone and would make our climate change crisis worse.

To urge the President to stop the construction of this Pipeline, Americans can sign a petition by our good buddies over at Change.org.
