- Two studies released today find that if built, the controversial Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines would together contribute as much greenhouse gas pollution as 45 coal-fired power plants -- some 158 million metric tons a year.
- Donald Trump supports almost none of those things Justin Trudeau claims to. So it's a big problem when they actually seem to agree on one issue – building massive new tar sands pipelines like Keystone XL.
- Oil Change International stands in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and the thousands of water protectors who have and will continue to resist the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
- New research released today reveals disturbing new evidence on how locking-into new long-lived tar sands production undermines global efforts to address the global climate crisis far beyond Canada’s borders.

- We congratulate President Obama for this historic action. As he knows, and as he stated when he rejected Keystone XL, ‘if we’re going to prevent large parts of this Earth from becoming not only inhospitable but uninhabitable in our lifetimes, we’re going to have to keep some fossil fuels in the ground.
