Environmental groups on Thursday called on the State Department to reverse what it said were "flawed assumptions" in its recent environmental review of the Keystone XL pipeline that asserted the project is not the key driver of Canadian oil sands crude production.

The 12 groups said in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry that the department's supplemental environmental impact statement should be corrected to link the development of oil sands directly to the $5.4 billion line -- and that the project should in turn be rejected because it would contribute directly to climate change.
