Trump wasted no time – days after taking office, he signed an executive order aimed at reviving the reckless pipeline project.1 Two months later, he officially approved it.2 Now he wants to limit the project's required environmental review to just the newest section of the pipeline. But the last full environmental review was in 2014 – it's long out of date.3
The existing Keystone pipeline spills oil far more often than regulators predicted.4 In November, a leak in South Dakota spilled more than 5,000 barrels of oil. The line has already leaked twice in that state, where TransCanada had initially predicted a spill "no more than once every 41 years.”5
We know the pipeline isn't safe – and we cannot allow the Trump administration to rush its completion.
