Act Today – The Senate could approve Keystone XL tomorrow

Keystone XL Urgent Senate Vote: Take action!

Tell your senators:

“The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline is all risk and no reward for America. With climate change already harming our communities and pocketbooks across America now is the time for clean energy, not expansion of dirty energy such as tar sands. I urge you to stand against Keystone XL.”

Add your voice:

Take Action!

Dear Friends,

The Senate may vote as early as tomorrow to force the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, and reports suggest it could come down to a few votes.

We can’t let a group of senators in the pocket of Big Oil approve this pipeline. Send a message to your senators right now to tell them to say NO to KXL!

Approving Keystone XL would open the floodgates of climate-killing tar sands crude flowing through the U.S. It would ensure more disastrous oil spills, threaten sources of drinking water for millions, disrupt wildlife, and increase rates of cancer and other health problems in Canada and in refinery communities here in the United States.

Keystone XL is all risk and no reward.

If you have any doubt who these pro-pipeline senators are working for, consider this: the senators who are supporting this bill have received $21 million in contributions from Big Oil. On average, each cosponsor of the bill has received roughly $375,000 from the oil industry.1

Take a moment to remind your senators that our climate, our land, our water and our health are not for sale to Big Oil. Urge them to reject this attempt to hijack the review process and approve Keystone XL!

Together, we’ve kept Keystone XL from being built for five years — keeping more than 200 million metric tons of carbon pollution out of the atmosphere to date. We’ve come too far to have Big Oil write a fat check and buy the approval of this dirty tar sands pipeline from the U.S. Senate.

It’s important that your senators hear from you right now. Take a minute right now to stop the approval of Keystone XL.

Thanks for all you do for the environment,

Michael Marx
Sierra Club Beyond Oil Campaign Director
