The proposal to build the Keystone XL pipeline is now a political football in Washington. 

Tell President Obama:  Stand firm in opposing the proposed pipeline, which would endanger health and accelerate climate change.  Continue to require a meaningful review of the proposal – a review that includes health and safety concerns.

Please call the President today.

Talking points:

Tar sands endanger human health from start to finish:

  • Mining and processing the oily, viscous tar sands is heavily energy-intensive and destroys forests that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  • Extraction utilizes (and contaminates) large amounts of fresh water, leaving behind massive waste ponds filled with toxics.
  • The thick, toxic tar sands would be piped across the American heartland -- using more energy, endangering our land and aquifers, and polluting the Gulf states where it would be refined.
  • Tar sands oil won’t help the United States.  It would be sold on the international market, deepening the world’s addiction to dirty fossil fuels and postponing the transition to clean, safe, renewable energy sources.

Don’t approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
