The Trump Administration’s State Department just published another hastily-produced “Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS)” on Keystone XL that concludes the pipeline would have only “minor” impacts to our land, water, endangered species and Native American sacred sites in Nebraska like the Ponca Trail of Tears.A new 45-day public comment period on this sham review is now open, and we must make our voices heard.
Email Sec’y of State Mike Pompeo and tell him of your opposition to TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline
Just a few short weeks ago, a federal judge ruled that the Trump Administration’s review of Keystone XL was inadequate – now, Trump is back again with another sloppy review just 37 days later saying the impacts of the project would be “minor.”
A truly in-depth study would take months, if not years to complete. This is an insult to our communities, our water, and our climate. We will not accept Trump’s shortcuts to help out his friends in the fossil fuel industry.
Releasing their ‘new’ environmental review opens a 45-day public comment period before they draft the final version. You may remember we collected public comments just a few months ago – but we need to speak up again and make sure our voices are heard and counted.
The Cheyenne River Sioux Chairman, Harold Frazier, said in a statement this week that the struggle is approaching, as TransCanada started pre-construction work near the tribe’s South Dakota reservation.
