Keystone XL Pipeline: Your Last Chance to Say NO!

This is the final official comment period for Keystone XL pipeline. Both 350.org and the Sierra Club are joining many others in sending a message to President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry. They want to make it clear that this project is not in the national interest and Americans along with people around the world are against it.

The Keystone XL pipeline will put more dirty money into the pockets of big oil and worse, it will accelerate tar sands development in Canada, some of the dirtiest oil on earth. That's the definition of reckless.

Sierra Club supporters have already submitted over 100,000 comments -- we need to keep it up and push the national total to one million by April 22!

Its a fact, oil pipelines leak. To make the point there have been three major oil spills in the United States recently, including one that poured 84,000 gallons of tar sands into Arkansas backyards. The first Keystone pipeline saw an average of one oil spill per month in its first year of operations. Two years later, the Kalamazoo, Michigan spill still not cleaned up.

It's time to say no to spills, no to tar sands, and yes to the climate! With stakes this high, there is no excuse for the White House to approve Keystone XL. It's impossible to fight climate change while simultaneously investing in one of the dirtiest, most carbon-intensive fossil fuels on the planet.

This is your last chance to help stop Keystone XL pipeline before its too late.  Submit a comment and sign the petition before the April 22 deadline!
