Tell President Obama "Keep Your Promise: Reject Keystone XL"
Take action below to urge President Obama to keep his promise and reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
Because of a congressional rider attached to must-pass legislation that extended payroll tax cuts and job benefits, President Obama must now decide whether the Keystone XL pipeline is in the national interest and, if so, issue a permit by Feb. 21.
Mr. Obama has plainly said that if forced to make a rushed decision, he would have no other choice but to reject the pipeline; it's time for the president to keep his word.
If permitted, the 1,700-mile pipeline would transport almost 35 million gallons of tar-sands oil a day from Alberta to refineries in Texas. An already operational Keystone tar-sands pipeline has spilled 14 times since 2010; Keystone XL will also spill, polluting our land, air and water. The pipeline will further fuel greater development of tar-sands oil extraction with disastrous consequences for the environment. (Read more about tar-sands oil production at the bottom of the page.)
Tell President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline and oppose further tar-sands production. Then tell all your friends on Twitter and Facebook to do the same.
