Wells Fargo is investing in the Keystone XL pipeline at a time when we need to be taking serious measures to combat climate change, not taking steps backward with dirty fuels.
Keystone XL poses a grave and immediate threat to our climate and to every community it cuts through. Keystone XL would carry 830,000 barrels of the world's dirtiest oil -- tar sands -- every day from Alberta, Canada, to the U.S. Gulf Coast. It would be responsible for annual greenhouse gas emissions each year equal to 37.7 million cars -- a disaster for our climate. Keystone XL would cut directly through Sioux treaty lands and near several other tribal reservations and the Ponca Trail of Tears, yet Tribal Nations in Nebraska and South Dakota have not been properly consulted.
It’s time Wells Fargo stood on the right side of history. Urge Wells Fargo to divest from pipelines.
