It’s time for President Obama to intervene — before it’s too late.
His State Department is rushing toward approval of the disastrous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, which would enrich oil companies by transporting the world’s dirtiest oil 2,000 miles from Canada to Texas.
URGENT ACTION IS NEEDED HERE!
The pipeline will drive horrific destruction of songbird habitat in the Boreal forest . . . rev up excessive global warming pollution . . . and threaten the drinking water of millions of Americans with toxic spills.
The Keystone XL is a fossil fuel nightmare — NOT the clean energy future that President Obama promised America.
Call on President Obama to intervene immediately and reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
The President promised the American people a ‘robust review’ of the tar sands pipeline, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not delivered it.
We’re not surprised. A robust review would reveal that this entire scheme is a boon to Big Oil and a disaster-in-the-making for everyone else. It would destroy the myth that America needs this pipeline to ensure a supply of ‘friendly’ oil from Canada.
Bringing more of this ‘friendly’ oil to the U.S. will destroy millions of migratory birds and their ancient forest habitat . . . turbo-charge global warming . . . raise gas prices in the Midwest . . . and stands to poison wildlife habitats and drinking water in the American heartland.
With friends like that, who needs enemies?
What’s worse, the tar sands pipeline will practically slam the door on a clean energy future for America. It will lock us into the dirtiest, riskiest, most destructive oil on the planet — for decades to come.
Help us prevail on President Obama before it’s too late. Ask him to order Secretary of State Clinton to deliver the full review we were promised and to reject a project that is so clearly against our national interest.
Tell the President there is no room for the world’s dirtiest oil in our clean energy future!
