S.B. Activists Protest Keystone XL Pipeline


Dozens of activists gathered in De la Guerra Plaza (pictured) to rally against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline ​— ​which would transport crude oil from Canada across the U.S. for export ​— ​after the State Department released its final environmental impact report on the project on 2/3. “The Keystone XL pipeline will be a huge source of carbon pollution and clearly fails the climate test set by President Obama,” said Max Golding of 350.org in a prepared statement after the event. 350.org and a host of other organizations called on Obama to keep his commitment to reduce carbon pollution and reject the pipeline.
