24 Hours to Stop Keystone XL Pipeline

Stop Keystone XL

Wow! Over 775,000 signatures and counting! Thank you for taking action, this petition is now closed.

Senate Republicans are pulling out all the stops to reverse President Obama's denial of the Keystone XL pipeline. A vote restarting the disastrous pipeline may come as early as tomorrow.

The Center for Biological Diversity is joining 350.org and dozens of other groups in gathering 500,000 to 1 million petitions asking senators to block any efforts to revive the dangerous Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline.

If built, Keystone XL would transport dirty tar-sands oil 1,700 miles across six states and hundreds of water bodies, posing an unacceptable risk of spill.

This pipeline, or any other from the tar sands, absolutely should not be built. Help reach our goal of half a million petitions by noon EST, Tues., Feb 14. Sign the petition below right now and then share with your friends.


Senators: Block any efforts to revive the dangerous Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline.

An existing pipeline, Keystone 1, has already leaked 14 times since it started operating in June 2010, including one spill that dumped 21,000 gallons of tar-sands crude. Another tar-sands pipeline spilled 800,000 gallons in the Kalamazoo River.

Strip mining of oil from Alberta's tar sands is also destroying tens of thousands of acres of boreal forest and polluting hundreds of millions of gallons of water from the Athabasca River -- in the process creating toxic ponds so large they can be seen from space. Extraction and refinement of tar-sands oil produces two to three times more greenhouse gases per barrel than conventional oil and represents a massive new source of fossil fuels that leading climate scientist Dr. James Hansen has called "game over" for our ability to avoid a climate catastrophe.
