Petition: 60 Days to Stop the Keystone Pipeline

60 Days to Stop the Keystone Pipeline

 The payroll tax cut extension bill contains language forcing the President to decide whether to stop, or approve, the Keystone Xl Pipeline in the next 60 days. Obama is expected to sign the bill shortly, and environmental advocates are hoping he will use the time restraint to deny the permit.  But this hope is based on promises, and Obama has not proven himself to be a man of his word.

If allowed, the Pipeline would increase carbon emissions, contaminate our water, and degrade our health, among other concerns.  Just today, a  fuel pipeline in Colombia exploded, killing 11 people and injuring 70. Now is the time to put as much pressure on the President as possible.
