Letter of Opposition to Keystone XL Pipeline Submitted to President Obama

February 04, 2011

More than 80 groups expressed concern about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline in this letter sent to President Obama on February 4, 2011. The pipeline would pump more than 600,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil from Alberta to Texas over serious objections from communities along its nearly 2,000 mile path. A decision on the Presidential Permit is expected from the Department of State, though EPA as expressed concerns about the pipeline’s impact and the Department of Energy has stated that the pipeline is unnecessary.
