NY Attorney General Tells Feds to Hold Off on Keystone Pipeline Decision

Times Union : “Attorney General Eric Schneiderman wants the U.S. State Department to hold off on a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline project until there is a full analysis on potential pollution and climate change consequences.”  

“Schneiderman believes the State Department’s final environmental impact statement for the Keystone XL — issued Jan. 31 — failed to acknowledge the amount of climate change pollution that would be emitted. The AG’s office called that EIS ‘arbitrary and capricious’ in comments it submitted for the review.”  

“The AG’s office, like those in many states downwind of midwestern air pollution, has taken an active and
frequently litigious
role in emission issues.”
