Stop Keystone XL on Sept. 21

Frostpaw

Join the Center for Biological Diversity, the Environmental Youth Council and others on Sept. 21 for a national day of action called Draw the Line.

We're leading the fight to stop the Keystone XL pipeline and curb the climate crisis, but now it's time to draw a line and stop this destructive project for good. President Obama says he will reject the pipeline if it significantly adds to climate change and we know that it will -- to the tune of 18 million tons of heat-trapping carbon pumped into the atmosphere every year.

That is unacceptable if we want to maintain a livable climate for humans and wildlife.

Winning this fight is about bringing people together to tell the president and his administration that the time has come to show definitive climate leadership. The Center invites you to join us on Sept. 21 as part of a national day of action called Draw the Line.

We hope you'll join us at noon in Crescent Beach, Fla. We'll unfurl a 350-foot banner reading "Say No to Keystone" and assemble in a line along the projected sea level rise mark for that beach. A plane will fly overhead and take photos, so wear dark colors to better contrast against the sand. We'll also take pictures and video on the ground and have each participant state why s/he is drawing a line in the sand and telling Obama no to Keystone and yes to climate change solutions. After the beach demonstration, we'll take the rally to Genungs Fish Camp for speakers, music and refreshments.

Please RSVP using the form below. Then sign up on Facebook for updates and to invite your friends.
