Stand Against Keystone XL: It Doesn't Help America
The Obama Administration could make a decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline any day now—it’s time to speak up.
You’ve probably been hearing the talking points from TransCanada and big oil, but here are the facts:
• Keystone XL is not a job creator. The project will create only 35 permanent jobs, while threatening farms and communities along its path.
• The existing Keystone pipeline has already spilled more than 30 times. Future spills could contaminate water sources that serve millions of people.
• 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.
Add your name to stand against the Keystone XL Pipeline.
To: The Obama Administration
Americans are the ones who will bear the brute impact if the Keystone XL Pipeline is approved. I stand with NextGen Climate against Keystone because there is nothing in it for us.
