Keystone XL Stopped: Thank President Obama!
The Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline has once again been stopped in its tracks.
Following legislation that required a 60-day review of the tar-sands pipeline, the State Department announced that TransCanada's application to build the permit--somthing that was nearly a foregone conclusion 6 months ago--has been denied.
This wouldn't have been possible without committed activists like you that spoke up and told the President, the State Department, and your Members of Congress to say "No KXL".
This pipeline would have been disastrous for Whooping cranes and other imperiled species. Worse, it would cement our nation's reliance on dirty fossil fuels and could speed climate change if built.
The Keystone XL Pipeline is not history though. TransCanada can still reroute it to avoid the Sandhills region, a move that would do nothing to mitigate the threat posed to migrating endangered whooping cranes.
Take action now and thank President Obama for standing up in the face of relentless pressure from Big Oil and that you expect any revision of the Keystone XL Pipeline to be rejected. No reroutes will make this failed proposal safe for whooping cranes and no reroutes will change the impact of furthering our nation's reliance on dirty fossil fuels.
