Environmental Coalition Demands President Obama Ignore Keystone Pipeline permit

The Liberty Beat

By: Derrick Broze

Tuesday morning a coalition of environmental groups sent President Obama a letter telling him not to give in to a Presidential permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, regardless of Canada’s new climate emission rules. According to the Washington Post groups including the National Resources Defense council, League of Conservation Voters, 350.org, MoveOn.org, GreenPeace USA and others are making it clear to the President that his political base is still against the controversial pipeline. The coalition is opposing the pipeline based on dangers to the environment, land theft, and fear of loss of economical jobs as a result of the pipeline that is set to extend from Alberta, Canada down to just outside of Houston, Texas.
