Tell President Obama: Reject the Keystone XL Pipeline

It's on.

Congress approved a two-month payroll tax and unemployment extension bill that forces a decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline in 60 days, and President Obama signed it,

That means Republicans have gotten their wish -- President Obama has two months to decide on Keystone XL. And we have less than 60 days to make sure he does not approve it.

Tell President Obama: Reject the Keystone XL Pipeline.

President Obama promised us a thorough, transparent review of a new route after delaying the pipeline in November. And the hasty, accelerated timeline pushed by Republicans clearly won't allow this. As the State Department has said, 60 days isn't enough time to thoroughly evaluate the impacts and dangers of this project.

Republicans think they are trying to force a politically painful decision for the President. But instead, Republicans have served up our best opportunity to stop Keystone XL for good this time. Because the reality is, there's nothing politically painful about saying "NO" to a project that makes no sense.

This pipeline is a dangerous giveaway to a foreign oil company, that will pollute our land and water, will not produce a meaningful number of jobs, will not reduce our reliance on foreign oil one drop.

It was projects like this that President Obama inspired us to oppose when he said "Let's be the generation that finally frees America from the Tyranny of oil." He certainly did not say "let's be the generation that brings essentially game over to a liveable climate."

By delaying this pipeline, he was pushing this decision until after the election. Now he must face it.

This is the moment -- a 60 day window -- to inspire President Obama to be the President he told us he would be and make sure he does not approve this dirty pipeline.

Tell President Obama: Yes you can, stop the Keystone XL Pipeline!

The clock is ticking. With enough pressure, we will be closer than ever to defeating Keystone XL.

President Obama
The Republicans' forced 60 day decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline is a giveaway to a foreign oil company that shows a stunning disregard for the American people. The comprehensive, open evaluation you promised is now impossible. Please reject the dirty, dangerous, and economically-damaging Keystone XL Pipeline once and for all.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      President Obama please stand up for the environment and our future. Stand strong against the claims that this a project will bring in jobs when many argue that in the long run it will hurt job growth. Be the leader we know you are and make this decision based on the LONG TERM outcomes, not immediate political pressure or potential short-term job gain. Thank you

      The few temporary jobs are not worth the health and ecological dangers.
