Thank EPA for Objecting to Keystone XL's Shoddy Environmental Review!
In March the State Department released a study that blatantly dismissed evidence about the impacts of toxic tar sands and the Keystone XL pipeline.
The EPA has now issued a harsh rebuke to the State Department's report, calling for a more careful study of the pipeline. The EPA questioned State's conclusion that Keystone won't have a significant environmental or climate impact, and slapped the overall document with the shoddy rating of "Environmental Objections Insufficient Information."
The letter calls for a more aggressive study of the impact of tar sands on climate change and a thorough assessment of the challenges that come with cleaning up a tar sands spill like we've seen in Arkansas and Michigan.
Thank the EPA for calling out the State Department for its inadequate environmental review of the Keystone XL pipeline proposal!
