Pipeline

by Firedoglake

President Obama is expected to make his final decision on whether to approve the massive, controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, the State Department's review of the project laughably concluded that increasing access to the 'third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world' would not have a significant effect on global warming. It's clear that meaningful resistance to the Keystone XL pipeline will not come from inside the Obama administration; we the people will have to continue to make the case ourselves. Eight other federal agencies have until May to weigh in on the State Department's report, at which point the secretary of State will make a recommendation and then President Obama will be tasked with making a final decision.

This is going to be neat...

Hello, my name is {name} and I'm calling today to ask that President Obama reject the Keystone XL pipeline once and for all. I know the president is expected to make his final decision on the matter in the next few months. The Keystone XL Pipeline is dirty, destructive project that will do little for job creation. Approving this project would be the equivalent of setting off a carbon bomb. I'm asking that President Obama not mortgage the future of our planet to score some political points - please reject this pipeline.
