State Dept. Signs Off on Controversial Tar Sands Pipeline – Solve Climate
The U.S. State Department approved a controversial pipeline project today that, once built, will carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, into the northern United States.
Environmental groups and Native Americans who have been fighting the Alberta Clipper pipeline plan are already preparing a legal challenge.
