Saturday morning Congress mad a backroom deal that would rush a decision on the dirty Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline. This dirty, dangerous, oil pipeline proposal would bring corrosive oil from Canada through America’s Heartland. It would be devastating to our air, our water and our climate.
Big Oil’s allies successfully held the Payroll Tax Cut hostage to a rider that would order the Obama Administration to ignore public input, good science and environmental laws and fast track a decision on the Keystone XL tar sand oil pipeline in the next 60 days.
Once again good public policy is being held hostage to dirty bullying. Please contact your Senators now and tell them you are disappointed in this decision and that you expect them to stand strong against the dirty Keystone XL oil pipeline project.
We celebrated a victory last month for our future Beyond Oil when President Obama decided the Keystone XL oil pipeline needed a more in depth review. Don’t let Big Oil try to rob us of that victory and our clean energy future.
It is frustrating, maddening and upsetting to see our progress stalled, but the fight to keep Big Oil and this awful pipeline project at bay is far from over.
Please contact your Senators right now and tell them to stand strong against the dirty Keystone XL oil pipeline. Tell them not to give in to Big Oil blackmail.
