WASHINGTON (November 6, 2015)— President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline that would have crossed from Canada into the United States, and run all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. This announcement resolves one of the major environmental issues from President Obama’s tenure and sends a strong signal of the administration’s leadership, coming just ahead of the Paris climate negotiations in December.

WASHINGTON— As momentum builds for a global climate deal in Paris in just a few weeks, senior staff and experts from World Resources Institute will host a press call and in person briefing to provide insights and expectations for the conference.

The press call will take place on Wednesday, November 18, at 9:30 a.m. EST and will feature Dr. Andrew Steer, WRI’s president & CEO, Jennifer Morgan, global director of WRI’s Climate Program, and other experts.
