Minnesotans and allies gathered at Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s office to urge him to stop Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands pipeline with 17,000+ petitions from nearly 500 Minnesota towns, cities, and municipalities.
We know that people power can stop dangerous fossil fuel projects like the proposed Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline in Minnesota, because we’ve proved it over and over again – and recently we’ve had two more big wins.
“De facto halting this dangerous project keeps open the only credible path for Canada to live up to its obligation to fight climate change. Building new, long-lived pipelines in support of ever-growing oil production and export is wholly incompatible with the rapid transition away from fossil fuels required.”
“It’s not surprising that Kinder Morgan – successor to fraud-plagued Enron – wants to unload this boondoggle onto taxpayers. What’s surprising and disappointing is that Canada fell for it.”
