Demand President Biden halt construction on the Line 3 tar sands pipeline:
Minnesota just granted some of the final permits needed for the Line 3 tar sands pipeline that would carry heavy Canadian oil across 340 miles in North Dakota, northern Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
If constructed, this pipeline would carry 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil from Canada every day through a three-foot-wide pipe, as big as Keystone XL – devastating our climate, threatening the Mississippi River, and violating treaty rights.
There is no way that Biden can recognize the implications of Keystone XL on our climate and communities and ignore the consequences of Line 3.
Climate science, treaty rights, and economics clearly show that this pipeline would harm sacred sites and push our climate further into crisis. Biden must listen to the vocal majority across the country who oppose this dirty pipeline and reject tar sands altogether.
