Gallery: For Earth Day, Tell President Obama to Reject the Keystone XL ...

 

There is no bigger issue for the environmental movement right now than the Keystone XL Pipeline, a 3,400-mile pipe that would transport oil extracted from the tar sands in northern Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico. Because the pipeline would span two countries, the decision of whether or not to approve the Keystone pipeline ultimately rests in the hands of President Obama, and he has given no indication that he will oppose the pipeline. The public comment period for the pipeline ends today, April 22nd (Earth Day), and we urge you to send a personalized message to President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry asking them to reject the pipeline.

    What? That doesn’t make any sense. The oil is being produced and consumed right now and is being moved by current pipelines and the extra is being moved by rail and truck. Stopping this pipeline doesn’t actually help the environmental movement at all. The same oil will just be moved by rail. We should probably be screaming about not enough subsidies for solar or something that would actually impact the consumption side.

    I agree with you on the pipeline and what it will do to our climate but, in all reality this will not be stopped and all I feel we can do is watch, wait and pray. My Husband works in the oil fields here in Tx I see what we are doing to our world, why is he working in the oil cause we need a paycheck we need to eat and pay our bills. Do we agree with what we are doing to our world NO! but again all we can do is try and make the best of what we can and hope we all can make it better.
