Greenberg discusses environmental impacts of Keystone XL pipeline

greenberg-EISbookBloustein professor Michael R. Greenberg, author of The Environmental Impact Statement After Two Generations: Managing Environmental Power, was interviewed by Scientific American recently about the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which forces agencies to consider the environmental consequences of their decisions, and the economic impact statement (EIS) developed for the possible expansion of the Keystone XL oil pipeline into the United States.

TransCanada’s Keystone XL would carry up to 830,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada more than two thousand miles to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast, crossing six American states including Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
