Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline
What's At Stake
The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline would send a flood of toxic tar sands oil—one of the dirtiest fuels in the world—through America’s heartland.
It would threaten our land, our drinking water, and our communities from Montana and Nebraska to the Gulf Coast. It would drive catastrophic climate change. And it would be a giveaway to big oil that would force the American people to pay the price for generations to come.
NRDC and our allies successfully pushed the Obama administration to reject the pipeline in November 2015, but President Trump brought it back from the dead with a presidential memorandum just days after his inauguration. The Trump administration and its big polluter allies are intent on making sure the pipeline gets built at all costs—but the fact remains that several obstacles still stand in the way of this disastrous project.
NRDC and our partners are once again in court fighting to stop the unlawfully approved pipeline. It’s up to all of us to mobilize a worldwide outcry and show Trump that the world stands united against the climate-wrecking Keystone XL and the expansion of dirty tar sands.
