Last chance to submit your comment on Keystone XL
Secretary Kerry’s State Department issued its long-awaited report on the environmental impacts of the dirty, dangerous Keystone XL pipeline. This marks a pivotal moment in the fight against the pipeline. Now it’s your turn to weigh in: we only have a few days to submit comments before Secretary Kerry makes his recommendation to the president.
The Keystone XL pipeline creates tremendous risk of devastating spills right in our heartland by pumping a torrent of toxic tar sands oil from Canada straight through the United States. It would endanger water supplies, destroy forests and worsen climate change at an intolerable rate. Thanks to activists like you, we have stopped the pipeline from being built time and again -- but the fight is not over. We can win this, but we’re going to need all hands on deck.
Secretary Kerry has a decades-long record as a climate champion. But if he lends his support to a dirty pipeline based on a biased review, his legacy will be irreparably tarnished. We have very little time to convince Secretary Kerry to put the real facts about the risks for our lands and our climate into that report.
