Governor of Nebraska Backs Route for Pipeline

"The latest pipeline review still ignores the biggest impact of Keystone XL: climate change,” said May Boeve, the executive director of 350.org, an environmental advocacy group. “The tar sands oil that would flow through Keystone XL is the dirtiest form of fuel on the planet, and burning it would have a devastating effect on our climate.”

She said the group was planning a large rally in front of the White House on Feb. 17 to urge the president to reject the pipeline.

“The decision is now firmly on President Obama’s desk,” Ms. Boeve said. “Approving Keystone XL would make a mockery of the commitment he made at the inauguration to take action on climate change.”
