    Stand with the pipeline fighters working to stop Keystone XL

    The Keystone XL pipeline would be a disaster for the planet, a massive threat to drinking water supplies and a slap in the face to the farmers, ranchers and indigenous people who live on or near the pipeline’s proposed route.

    While the permitting process for Keystone XL continues in Nebraska, CREDO is proud to be joining with our friends at Bold Nebraska, 350.org, Indigenous Environmental Network and Oil Change International in a project called Solar XL to install solar panels along the route of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline in Nebraska.1

    Please join us in thanking and standing in solidarity with the pipeline fighters along the proposed Keystone XL route who are doing everything in their power to make sure this dirty tar sands pipeline is never built. Our friends at Bold Nebraska will soon share our thank you messages directly with pipeline fighters on the route, so please add your name now to make sure they know we stand with them.

    The Solar XL campaign launched one month before the Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC) is expected to hold the last major hearing on the Keystone XL pipeline. Nebraska is the last state to review the pipeline and the PSC has the ability to approve, reject or alter TransCanada’s proposed route. Hundreds of thousands of CREDO members have already submitted comments urging commissioners to reject the permit.

    If approved, the Keystone XL pipeline would be a major contributor to climate change, carrying 830,000 barrels a day of foreign tar sands from Canada through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska then on to the export market. TransCanada’s proposed route through Nebraska would destroy sensitive and environmentally important ecosystems as well as threaten the region’s water supply.2

    Potential oil spills from the pipeline would be devastating and could contaminate the Ogallala aquifer, one of the world’s largest underground freshwater sources. The aquifer supplies drinking water for millions people in the region and provides irrigation for 20 percent of the nation’s farmland.34>

    The Solar XL campaign will put renewable energy directly in Keystone XL’s path, underscoring the need to center solutions to climate change while resisting the expansion of the fossil fuel industry. That’s why CREDO is proud to be contributing $10,000 to help make Solar XL possible.

    With the Trump administration doing everything in its power to reverse the progress we’ve made in keeping fossil fuels in the ground, the need for a just transition to 100 percent renewable energy has never been greater. Please join us in thanking the brave pipeline fighters along the proposed Keystone XL route who are leading the fight.
