US court aproved license for deepwater oil-export facility

Environmental groups, including the Sierra Club, had called for a review arguing that the project's environmental assessment failed to fully assess the danger of oil spills, emissions or its affect on protected marine life.
Activities in all phases of oil development contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and exacerbate ongoing climate change.
Exploring and drilling for oil may disturb land and marine ecosystems.

    It's disappointing to see the court siding with the oil industry on this one.

      Disappointed that the US court approved this license for a deepwater oil-export facility. This is a step backwards for our fight against climate change. Oil spills, emissions & harming marine life are all huge risks.

        In as much as we follow the laws ...this is wrong ..all ecosystems including the marine are all important for our survival.

          It's disheartening to see the approval of a license for a deepwater oil-export facility, especially in the face of urgent climate concerns.

                @elizbeth_gathigia The court instead should step in to fight such projects.

                This is absurd coming from the judiciary. Needs to be appealed
