Tell President Obama to reject a pipeline for the world's dirtiest oil
Update -- We have a new action to President Obama that you can take here:
Canadian oil giant TransCanada wants to double imports of dirty tar sands oil into U.S. by building a new pipeline called the Keystone XL. This pipeline would endanger the health of communities and ecosystems all along its path from Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas. NASA scientist James Hansen has warned that exploiting the tar sands could mean "game over" for staving off catastrophic climate change impacts.
President Obama has the final say over whether this pipeline is built, and we need to turn up the pressure on him now.
Please join us in calling on President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline and focus on clean, safe energy alternatives.
As big oil companies exploit the Canadian tar sands to great profit, the environment and indigenous communities are paying a steep price. TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline would lock us into reliance on dirty tar sands oil, threatening communities along its route and our climate.
I urge you to focus on clean, safe energy alternatives and reject the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.
