“Today’s House of Representatives vote to force approval of the Keystone pipeline is a wrong-turn on energy. Instead of focusing on building a single pipeline designed to carry highly-polluting tar sands oil, Congress should instead work to enact a forward-looking climate and energy plan that accelerates America’s transition to clean energy.”
