From CredoAction.com:

Even with a president who recently professed a lofty goal of getting all cars off of oil, even with one of our stronger climate hawk senators as the new secretary of state, the State Department still released a joke of an environmental assessment of the Keystone XL pipeline, taking us one big step closer to approval of this project that should be a no-brainer of a rejection.

From Care2 Petition Site:

If someone tried to run a giant sewer line through your backyard, you’d try to stop them, right? That’s exactly what TransCanada, a foreign oil company, is trying to do to Susan Dunavan and her family. They want to run the sprawling Keystone XL oil pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta to the Gulf Coast, putting Susan’s family and her neighbors in danger.

Environmentally, this pipeline would be a disaster. Tar sand oil is extremely dirty, emitting three times more carbon dioxide than conventional oil. Worse, this pipeline means a persistent threat of an oil spill anywhere along its 2,000-mile length.

Economically, Keystone XL is no better. Estimates indicate the price of gas in Midwestern towns would skyrocket. Moreover, President Obama recently said the project would only create about 50 permanent jobs.

Send a message to TransCanada CEO Russ Girling today: Stop the Keystone XL project before it damages the very fabric of our heartland!
