Emergency alerts from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the U.S. Gulf Coast have been flowing into local communities across the country.
They are part of an ongoing program that has the Coast Guard monitoring oceanic traffic, which has become increasingly common in recent years due to climate change and rising ocean temperatures.
The agency has been working with the Coast and surrounding communities to monitor the region’s coastal waters, including for marine traffic.
“The Coast Guard is committed to being a resource that helps communities in our region respond to this unprecedented and increasingly challenging climate event,” said Captain Scott Johnson, the Coastguard’s assistant commander for the Gulf Coast.
“This is just the beginning.
The Coast Guard will continue to monitor oceanic communications for marine emergencies, and work with local communities to determine best practices for how to respond to marine emergencies.
This is just a small piece of the Coast’s global effort to ensure the Coast is prepared to respond in a coordinated, coordinated way to these unprecedented conditions.”
The Coast’s coastal response has been a major priority for President Donald Trump, who in December announced a $1.5 billion initiative to build the Keystone XL Pipeline to carry oil from Alberta, Canada, to Texas.
The project would create hundreds of thousands of jobs, boost the economy and help the U,S.
economy recover from the economic devastation of the Great Recession.
In March, the Trump administration released a plan that calls for expediting approval of the pipeline, which would begin construction in 2021 and reach full capacity in 2023.
The president has pledged to move forward with the project, despite his pledge to scrap the project altogether in January 2019.
“In light of the current global climate and sea level changes, the Keystone Pipeline project will not proceed.
The Administration will be reviewing all options to expedite the completion of the Keystone pipeline, including expediting the permitting process, and working with all stakeholders to determine the best way forward for the project,” the White House said in a statement at the time.
While the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines have received some national media attention, the other three major oil pipelines that carry crude from Canada to refineries in the United States — the Keystone, Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast — are largely ignored by the media.
“The Keystone XL pipeline is in the process of being reviewed by the Coast,” the agency said in its latest update, but it was unclear if the Coast was actively reviewing the project.
The pipeline has received mixed reviews in the media and public, and there have been some reports that it would require an environmental impact statement before being approved.
In an article published last week, the Associated Press described the project as “a $3.8 trillion pipeline that would transport Canadian crude oil from the tar sands of Alberta, to refiners on the Gulf of Mexico coast.”
A 2016 study by the University of Alberta found that the pipeline would require between 7.6 and 8.1 billion barrels of oil.
In 2016, the pipeline was the subject of a lawsuit filed by the Environmental Protection Agency, which accused the company of “excessively risky, dangerous and wasteful construction, engineering, and operation” in the construction of the project and of “grossly underestimating the risks of the proposed pipeline.”
In a statement last week to the AP, the agency acknowledged that the project was still in the early stages of its approval process.
“We continue to evaluate the environmental impact of the proposal and look forward to reviewing it in full in 2018,” the statement read.
“While we do not have an immediate determination on the Keystone project, we do have an open call to review the proposed Keystone XL and Dakota pipelines.”
The Keystone and the Dakota Access projects are expected to create millions of jobs.
But the Keystone’s impact on the U.,S.
climate has been understudied.
As the oil sands boom continues to develop, a new study has found that emissions from tar sands production in Alberta could be responsible for nearly a third of global greenhouse gas emissions from the oil-rich province in 2030.
A new study from the University at Buffalo and the University the Environment found that if tar sands oil were to continue to be transported to the United State and other parts of the world, “the emissions associated with this project would increase substantially over the near term.”
The authors estimate that the Keystone will produce more than 6 billion barrels (about 3.2 billion barrels) of oil per year.
The environmental impact assessment of the TransCanada project is currently underway, which is expected to be completed this summer.
A 2016 report by the United Nations Environment Program estimated that the Dakota oil pipeline would cause about 6 million to 8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year by 2030.
While there is a wide range of opinions on the environmental impacts of the oil pipelines, one of the most widely held views is that the projects are in direct conflict with federal regulations, which aim to keep the country’s emissions below a threshold. A
