On the final day of public comments on the Keystone pipeline opponents outnumbered supporters 2 to 1.
“We’re hearing from people all across this country who know that the Keystone XL pipeline is absolutely not in our nation’s best interest,” said Amanda Starbuck, the Rainforest Action Network’s climate program director, in a statement. “The two million comments delivered today reflect a huge wave of resistance to the pipeline. From the Oglala Lakota Sioux fighting to stop the pipeline from entering their territory to the hundreds of students arrested at the White House gates, we stand united with everyday Americans who are ready to do what it takes to stop this pipeline, once and for all.”
