Yesterday, we asked you to send a message to Washington demanding that our elected officials reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline once and for all. Green For Alljoined 350.organd 30 other environmental groups and environmentally conscious businesses in this incredible effort.
We were shooting for 500,000 supporters, but in 24-hours more than 800,000 of you told your elected officials to say no to the Keystone tar sands pipeline.
Fifteen of the nation’s top climate scientists also added their names to the effort by sending a personal letter to the Senate, urging leadership to abandon the tar sands pipeline, because of its impact on the environment and climate.
Today, your petitions were delivered to Congress. Check out the photos here!
Thank you for demanding that our leaders stand for the American public. We will continue to keep up the fight against Keystone XL as long as Big Oil and their supporters continue to promote oil profits above the health and safety of Americans.
