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.

Tell President Obama: KXL is NOT in our national interest!

President Obama made it clear that he won't approve the Keystone XL pipeline if it harms the climate. Evidence from the scientific community, industry analysts, and the EPA has already shown that Keystone XL would exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution -- and now even the State Department has backed off its initial finding that the project would have "no significant impact" on the climate.

The president now has all the facts he needs to reject Keystone XL. It's up to us to make sure he does.

Take action: Tell President Obama to keep his promise, and reject Keystone XL once and for all!
