Tell President Obama: Time to Reject Keystone XL
The Nebraska Supreme Court just announced a ruling upholding the Keystone XL route.
The President and State Department put the official National Interest Determination process on hold last April pending a ruling in Nebraska. Now, President Obama must finally make a decision.
This is a pivotal moment -- please sign the petition now to build pressure on President Obama to immediately reject Keystone XL. We’ll be delivering your signature to the White House next week.
Now that Republicans control the Senate, even if the president rejects the pipeline, they will try to force approval again and again and again. In fact, the House voted on Friday to force approval on a bill the president has already declared he would veto because it falls outside of the official National Interest Determination process -- which the Nebraska decision now restarts.
Regardless of what the fossil fuel industry is able to ram through Congress, the next step in our fight to stop this dirty tar sands oil pipeline is for the president to finally declare that it is not in our national interest.
The past year has made it clearer than ever that Keystone XL is a climate disaster that fails the test he set. If President Obama is serious about being a global leader for climate action and recognizing his moral responsibility to act for future generations, he simply must reject Keystone XL.
