Stop a New Oil Pipeline Across the Midwest - Deadline June 6

    1. Sponsored by

      Sierra Club

Big Oil companies are pulling out all the stops to flood the State Department with messages calling on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to permit a new tar sands oil pipeline.

We only have just hours left to fight back before the public comment period ends. 

The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would cross pristine land in six states and put over 2 million Americans' drinking water at risk.

Moreover, when TransCanada proposed the first Keystone pipeline, Keystone 1, they estimated that it would ONLY leak once every seven to eleven years. But they neglected to include the pipeline's pumping stations, which have already sustained 11 reported spills in the last year! 

Now Big Oil wants the State Department to allow the SAME company build a new pipeline so it can pump even more tar sands oil deeper into our country. Tell Secretary Clinton to put our health and safety first, not Big Oil profits.

      Instead of oil, lets invest in new technologies such as those coming from MIT researchers.

      The Gulf of Mexico, Yellowstone River... how much more of America needs to be covered in toxic brown goo for the people to realize this is not the way for us to reach a stable energy policy? Use the subsidy money that is thrown down the bottomless maw greedy oil corporations to build solar/wind/tidal power. It's time to stop the expansion of oil infrastructure, and begin making a better Earth for our children instead of worse.

      Are the oil companies so greedy, that they can't fund a refinery instead of a pipline?

      Please help keep the drinking water clean....don't let America become like a 3rd world country with our rivers and lakes black with pollutants. Do you believe a celebrity will help each Amercian get clean water then?

      We are trying to get away from fossil fuels. No more help should be going toward getting it to homes. If we do that there is less incentive to get going on our wind and geothermal powers.
