REJECT KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE ONCE AND FOR ALL

President Obama's veto threat is a testament to the dedication and resolve of millions of grassroots activists who have for years fought to stop this pipeline, against all odds.

People have marched, written letters, conducted sit-ins at the White House and along the route of the pipeline, and self-organized a large-scale network ready to do whatever it takes to win.

The President's veto threat is the direct result of all of that hard work, and a milestone on the path to killing this pipeline for good. Now, let's take the next step, and
push President Obama to reject Keystone once and for all.

The veto threat is welcome news, but our work isn't finished yet. The new Republican Congress has pledged to keep Keystone at the top of its agenda. Meanwhile, the White House says it's waiting for the results of the State Department approval process before making a final decision.

Enough.


President Obama has all the information he needs to do the right thing and reject the pipeline today. He has said that he won't approve the Keystone XL pipeline if it significantly increases carbon pollution. Well, the evidence is in, and it is overwhelming: Keystone XL utterly fails the climate test. In fact, the pipeline would light the fuse to the continent’s biggest carbon bomb. It would kill any hope for keeping climate change within two degrees of warming. Any spill would devastate communities along the pipeline route, contaminate drinking water, and wreck delicate ecosystems.

President Obama's veto threat is a huge step in the right direction, but it's not enough. We need him to finish the job and issue a clear "no" on this disastrous project.
Call on him to reject the Keystone XL pipeline today.

Tell Congress: Overturn Citizens United NOW

The flood of polluter money in politics has had a devastating impact on our environment. From the failure to regulate dangerous bee-killing pesticides to the massive giveaway of billions of taxpayer dollars to the fossil fuels industry, excessive corporate power has not only poisoned our environment but our democracy as well.

January 21 will mark the 5th anniversary of the
Citizens United v. FEC case, in which the Supreme Court ruled that corporations had a First Amendment right to spend unlimited amounts of “independent expenditures” in an effort to sway our elections. 
We must put an end to this unlimited spending.

Tell Congress: Overturn
Citizens United NOW: http://bit.ly/OverturnCtznsUntd
The American people deserve a Congress that worries less about helping big banks and more about helping regular people who have been cheated on mortgages, credit cards, on student loans and on credit reports.
Elizabeth Warren, U. S. Senator from Massachusetts
