Across the country people are saying:

The Environmental Impact Statement released by the State Department That’s good and bad: on the one hand, it’s better than the previous reports, which gave much more support for the pipe -- but on the other hand, it avoids the glaringly obvious fact that that a pipeline carrying 800,000 barrels per day of the world’s dirtiest oil would be a disaster for the climate, and the lives of Indigenous communities, farmers and homes along the route.does not take a stand on whether President Obama should approve the KXL pipeline.
We’ve been in this place before.
We may be here again. And what counts in moments like these are not the words in Washington’s reports, but rather the voices of people in the streets -- that’s what changes the equation for the President.
