In response to the announcement that oil will start being transferred via the Line 3 pipeline on Friday, Janet Redman, Greenpeace USA Climate Campaign Director, said:
“The completion of Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline is a major failure of the Biden administration. The UN’s most recent climate change report confirms that the biggest threat to our families, communities, and the environment is the fossil fuel spurred climate crisis. The science is clear, we must end all new fossil fuel projects if we hope to limit the impacts of the climate crisis.
“There is no path to avoiding a climate catastrophe that includes fossil fuels. It is time for President Biden to start listening to the communities whose air, water, and land are threatened by these projects. He needs to back 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.”
