"Climate change is a fact. And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did."
We need to tell him how important it is that he rejects the Keystone XL Pipeline, and ensure his pro-environment legacy.
Here are the facts:
• Keystone XL would create 5 billion tons of CO2 by 2050. This would further damage our environment and make it even harder to combat climate change.
• The existing Keystone pipeline has already spilled more than 30 times. Future spills could contaminate water sources that serve millions of people.
• Keystone XL is not a job creator. The project will create only 35 permanent jobs, while threatening farms and communities along its path.
The project represents a long-term commitment to one of the world’s dirtiest fossil fuels when we should be working to curb climate change and secure a sustainable energy future.
