No Keystone XL pipeline!
Moving tar sand though pipes isn’t safe. There will be leaks! The Keystone XL’s route is across the world’s largest aquifer, which is the drinking water and irrigation used by millions of Americans.
This oil is headed for the gulf for a reason, to export. Having a Canadian oil company expanded its market helps you how? Jobs? Studies say job numbers are inflated and will be temporary.
A tar sands waste product called petro coke is now stacking up and causing public health issues. This petro coke can be burned in power plants, but it’s high-sulfur fuel, dirtier than the coal.
Most important, when it's climate vs. economy, climate had better start winning out. We need to move away from fossil fuels fast!
Email, call or write your senators. Tell them you're against the Keystone pipeline.
