On Friday, TransCanada got a permit from the U.S. State Department to build the Keystone XL pipeline. But that doesn’t mean the fight is over.
“We’ve already won an awful lot,” said 350.org’s Bill McKibben in a statement on Friday. “Six years times 800,000 barrels of oil a day equals a lot of carbon emissions saved. Not to mention that six years of delay has cost Transcanada a small fortune.”
The organizations that successfully spearheaded the fight against Keystone XL during Obama’s administration are gearing up to fight again. Tonight, join a webinar with leaders from The Sierra Club, 350.org, Indigenous Climate Action, and BOLD Alliance to find out what’s next in the fight against new fossil fuel infrastructure.
