Sign the Petition to

President Barack Obama

Enbridge, a Canadian oil pipeline company, has devised a scheme to circumvent both the letter and the spirit of the law to significantly increase the flow of tar sands through its Alberta Clipper (Line 67) pipeline without federal review or oversight.

I was disappointed to hear reports that the State Department is aware of this scheme but has chosen to look the other way and let Enbridge increase the capacity of the Alberta Clipper before the environmental review and national interest determination for that project are completed. Even worse, it appears that the State Department is letting Enbridge build a brand new cross-border tar sands pipeline (an entirely new Line 3, next to the old one of the same name) without any review or permitting whatsoever!

I'm shocked that this scheme has been allowed to move forward behind closed doors, while at the same time the administration has rightfully maintained that the official review process for Keystone XL must be completed.

Please demonstrate the State Department's commitment to the law and President Obama's climate promises by ensuring that Alberta Clipper, Line 3, and any other new pipeline or pipeline expansion, undergo the appropriate environmental impact assessment and are not given permits if they harm our climate.

Signed,

Sierra Club

How this will help

President Obama has the power stop Enbridge's illegal tar sands pipeline expansion and make the company get the required environmental review and presidential permit.
