Keystone XL = Climate Disaster
TransCanada is trying to build the Keystone XL (KXL), an 875-mile pipeline that would transport up to 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands crude from Alberta, Canada. This pipeline is part of an effort by the oil industry to export millions of barrels per day of tar sands from Alberta through the United States to international markets. Extracting tar sands is one of the most destructive projects on earth. Reliance on tar sands oil hinders our ability to avoid climate disaster.
The US now faces a clear choice: promote the oil industry's interests by green-lighting the most carbon-intensive, destructive oil on the planet, or demonstrate a bold commitment to addressing climate disruption and promoting clean energy solutions by saying NO to Keystone XL.

Urge President Obama to reject KXL once and for all!
President Obama has made it clear that Keystone XL can't be in our national interest -- and thus must be rejected -- if it increases carbon pollution and makes climate change worse.
While it has always been clear that Keystone XL will do just that, every day it becomes more and more undeniable. In 2014 alone, three major tar sands projects were canceled because they were simply unprofitable given rising costs, lower oil prices and lack of market access from pipelines like Keystone XL. This means that approving Keystone XL would open the floodgates of climate-damaging tar sands crude flowing through the U.S. -- which is just what Big Oil needs to expand production.
Take action: Tell President Obama to keep his climate promise, and reject Keystone XL once and for all!
