Tell President Obama: “Reject Keystone XL”

Last month, President Obama presented his plan for tackling climate change and vowed to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline if it “significantly increases global warming pollution.”

There is plenty of evidence that it would do just that, but his State Department has not gotten the message.

Their latest environmental review parrots Big Oil’s bogus claim that the Keystone XL, which would pump more than 800,000 barrels a day of tar sands crude oil, would not drive more climate chaos.

Both the State Department and the White House are under ferocious pressure from Big Oil and its climate-denying friends on Capitol Hill. After all, those companies have billions of dollars at stake. If we’re going to win this flashpoint battle, we need to fight back hard.

Please join Daily Kos and the Natural Resources Defense Council in urging President Obama to keep his promise and reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Dear President Obama:We take seriously your recent promise to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline if it will drive significantly more global warming pollution and create more climate chaos.Your State Department wants us to believe that the climate impacts of Keystone XL don’t matter, but that dubious claim has now been thoroughly debunked.We already know that Keystone XL is the linchpin for tar sands expansion and greatly increased global warming pollution. It is the fuse that will light the tar sands carbon bomb, triggering more climate upheaval.The Keystone XL gets a failing grade on your climate test. Please keep your promise by rejecting this climate-destroying pipeline.
