This week, the State Department released its Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) regarding the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline. If you’d like to get involved in the decision-making process regarding this project, here are three steps you should take. Voice your opinions!
1) First, take a quick review of the climate change issue from Climate Mama.
2) Second, read the Executive Summary of the Draft Supplemental EIS regarding the Keystone XL pipeline project.
3) Third, voice your opinion. If you’d like to make general comments to the Obama administration, you can use the Sierra Club website (if their opinions are aligned with yours). If you’d like to make more specific comments on the Draft Supplemental EIS (for instance, I had many comments regarding the endangered species section of the document), you can comment directly to the State Department via e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t just sit quietly while others make decisions that will affect future generations – your opinions are valuable!
