Tell Obama: Reject big oil bias -- and the Keystone XL pipeline
We have a more up-to-date action. Please go here to send your message to President Obama: https://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/455/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8948
The tangled web of corruption surrounding the Keystone XL pipeline implicates lobbyists and government officials alike. The cozy relationships between key State Department officials and corporate lobbyists lead all the way to the president’s doorstep. President Obama made a campaign promise to shut out oil lobbyists, yet the State Department’s blatant bias toward approving the Keystone XL pipeline is a clear example of oil influence over our democracy.
The Keystone XL pipeline would double imports of dirty tar sands oil into the U.S. and endanger the health of communities and ecosystems all along its path from Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas.
President Obama has said he'll make the final call on Keystone XL -- please urge him to do the right thing.
