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

This petition had 33,957 supporters

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.
