VICTORY! Keystone XL is history!
On November 12, we were joined by Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, Bill McKibben, and many others for an online, interactive celebration of the Keystone XL victory. Watch the video above, and don't forget to thank President Obama for rejecting KXL!
They said that it couldn't be done. They said our sights were too high. That Keystone XL was a "done deal" and would be approved just like any other oil pipeline. Yet after years of hard work and amazing dedication, we have achieved a monumental victory in the fight to protect our planet from the disastrous effects of fossil fuels and carbon pollution: President Obama has rejected the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline once and for all!
We owe this victory to the millions of Americans who came together and proved that people power can beat Big Oil, their billions of dollars, their armies of lobbyists, and the politicians they've bought.
Thank President Obama for rejecting Keystone XL!
President Obama kept his promise to reject Keystone XL if it would put future generations at risk from climate disruption. Take a moment to sign the thank you card thanking the president for his courageous action and letting him know you support his decision to reject KXL »

It's Time to Move America Beyond Oil
Imagine a world with clean, abundant, affordable energy. One where climate disruption is a fading threat and American soldiers are never again deployed to defend oil fields. One where innovative green industries provide good jobs and supply 100 percent of our energy needs. Imagine a healthier America, with clean air and water, with pristine coasts and protected natural areas. A wealthier, more productive nation, whose leaders answer only to the citizens who elect them. This is America beyond oil.
