|No more environmental disasters!
Three years ago today, BP caused the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, when an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig dumped millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Gulf region will take decades to recover from the BP spill — but you have the power to prevent the next environmental disaster. Submit your official comment against the Keystone XL pipeline today!
The Keystone XL pipeline would be a disaster, from start to finish. Tar sands oil is toxic for our climate, and mining the tar sands destroys pristine forests and threatens First Nation peoples.
And once the crude oil is in the pipeline, the threat would run right through our communities. We don’t need to wonder what the impact would be, because we’ve seen it three times in the past few weeks in Arkansas, Texas, and Canada. In Mayflower, Arkansas, crude oil flowed through neighborhoods where children normally would be playing outside. The Keystone XL pipeline would be nine times larger than that pipeline.
There are so many reasons to oppose the Keystone XL pipeline. But on this sad anniversary day, let’s remember the BP disaster, and take action to keep something like that from happening again.
Thanks for all you do,
Sierra Club Beyond Oil Campaign Director
