Proposed Keystone XL Pipeline's emissions could hurt rivers
Last week the State Department released the Final EIS on the Keystone XL pipeline. The decision to move forward now rests with the President. Activists from across the country met to tell the President to SAY NO TO KXL!
Locally the Environmental Youth Council (EYC) hosted a vigil and march across the Bridge of Lions on Monday February 3rd.
Neil Armingeon said "the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline's emissions could impact climate change – which could hurt rivers all over." Climate change is one of the biggest threats to the Matanzas Watershed.
