EPA Chief Gina McCarthy Discusses Administration's Climate Action PlanEPA Administrator Gina McCarthy commented Monday that construction of the Keystone XL pipeline would not spell doom for the planet. McCarthy was asked about the climate impact of Keystone XL at an event hosted by Politico’s Mike Allen.

“No, I don’t think that any one issue is a disaster for the climate… nor do I think there’s any one solution to the climate-change challenge that we have. Everything has to be looked at, I think, in a way that continues to advance our interests in moving toward a … low-carbon future.” – EPA chief Gina McCarthy, as reported by the National Journal
