In response to the Biden Administration’s backing Army Corps of Engineer permits for the Line 3 tar sands pipeline, Janet Redman, Greenpeace USA Climate Campaign Director said:

“A White House that is serious about protecting communities needs to start by listening to communities when they say they don’t want an oil pipeline threatening their water and land. Backing Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline is a massive failure for a president that campaigned on tackling the climate crisis. And it’s a betrayal of what he promised the American people.

“The science is clear. There is no path to avoiding a climate catastrophe that includes fossil fuels. It is time for President Biden to start backing up his words with action by stopping the expansion of oil and gas pipelines, phasing fossil fuels out of our economy, and transitioning to renewable energy.”
