Tell the State Department to Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline
The President is currently considering whether to grant a presidential permit to the oil company TransCanada for the construction of the Keystone XL tar-sands oil pipeline.
As part of that process, the State Department is accepting public comments to determine if the pipeline is in the national interest.
This is our last chance to stop this disaster before it's too late!
The Keystone XL Pipeline would carry nearly a million barrels a day of volatile raw bitumen through sensitive wildlife habitat and across rivers and streams.
This pipeline will be a disaster from start to finish if built as proposed. Even if the Keystone XL is somehow the single pipeline in Big Oil's arsenal that is secure and doesn't leak, the infrastructure it requires will put some of our most endangered species at great risk. The new aerial power lines alone could push whooping cranes closer to extinction as the pipeline stalks their migration route from border to coast.
Please email the State Department today and urge that the Pipeline be blocked.
