Who we are:
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy.
Oil Change International, Earthjustice and Sightline Institute have submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the US Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) seeking details on the Bureau’s criteria for recently approving multiple significant exceptions to the nation’s crude oil export ban.
The EPA's comments point to the fact that at current oil prices the pipeline would certainly trigger additional production in the tar sands, and thus significant additional emissions. Thus Keystone XL clearly fails the President’s climate test...
The Senate has voted to approve Keystone XL, and has chosen to once again side with Big Oil's money over our climate and our future.
The world is in a very big hole with climate change and when you're in a hole the first order of business should be to stop digging. Unfortunately, the Administration's Five Year Plan amounts to climate denial.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
9 JANUARY 2015
In response to the Nebraska Supreme Court decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline route, Steve Kretzmann, Executive Director of Oil Change International released the following statement:
“While the route for Keystone XL may have been approved on a technicality, passing the climate test is a much higher bar. Even the State Department’s own report was clear that in the event of low oil prices, Keystone would spur significant upstream production and thus significant additional carbon pollution. We look forward to the President’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline - the first piece of fossil fuel
