President Obama: Reject Keystone XL
January 13, 2015

For weeks, President Obama has been speaking like someone who wants to reject Keystone XL. Now it’s up to us to make sure that he follows through in the ways that matter.
Time is of the essence. Congress is working actively to do Big Oil's dirty work and interfere in the process. It's up to us to convince President Obama to stand tall and stop the pipeline now.

Tell the President to act, and act now
The decision is now in President Obama's hands, and he has a chance to stand tall. This is a key moment. The press will be watching closely the next few weeks to see if we can swing the President into action. I think we canand this is our chance to show it.
The facts about Keystone XL haven’t changed: the pipeline still doesn't have a permit in South Dakota, and resistance along the pipeline route will continue no matter what the courts say. The facts about Tar Sands oil—the dirtiest in the world—haven’t changed either. Keystone XL would be a climate disaster, carrying 830,000 barrels of export-bound oil every day. It’s unacceptable, and it fails the president's own climate standards. We say no, and we need our President to stand by his word.
Please sign this petition to the President today.
