Email the White House: “Don’t veto Keystone!”

Both the United States Senate and House of Representatives have passed legislation to greenlight construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. That means, any day, the legislation will be sent to President Obama’s desk—for his signature or veto. Time is short, so please…

Tell President Obama, “Don’t Veto Keystone XL!”

The President has threatened to veto Keystone, but we can help change his mind. His own State Department has issued five reports saying the Keystone XL pipeline will create jobs and have minimal environmental impact. Simply put, pipelines are among the safest, most environmentally friendly ways to transport oil. In addition, Keystone XL deserves the President’s support because it will:

  • Strengthen America’s energy security, economy, and national security.
  • Create more than 42,000 new American jobs.
  • Help the United States meet more of its energy needs with North American oil.

Help us get Keystone across the finish line. Tell President Obama to approve Keystone today! 

KXL Vote is Imminent

A final House of Representatives vote on the Keystone XL pipeline is just days away. Tell your Representative to vote yes on Keystone XL one more time.

This House vote is the final hurdle remaining before Keystone makes it to President Obama’s desk for the first time.

It is crucial to make sure your Representative knows that you support Keystone XL and want them to approve the Keystone legislation passed by the Senate last week.

After more than six years of waiting, we are finally nearing the finish line. Do your part to make this happen. Ask your Representative in Congress to vote once more in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline.

The Senate Should End the Obstructionism on Keystone

If you’ve been watching the news you’ve seen that a vocal minority in the United States Senate is doing everything it can to keep the Keystone XL pipeline from ever coming up for a vote. Just this week they resorted to one of the oldest obstructionist tricks in the book—the filibuster.

Tell the Senate it’s Time to End the Obstructionism. Bring Keystone Up for a Vote Today!

We can’t let their anti-energy extremism derail Keystone. Please send your Senators an email today making sure they know that you support Keystone XL and want there to be a public vote soon to approve construction of the pipeline.

A bipartisan majority of Americans have been waiting for Keystone for more than six years. We can’t let a desperate filibuster get in the way.

Please take just a second to send a message. We need as many people as possible for this to work! 

Keystone XL decision could be coming to a head

The new Congress has made approval of the Keystone XL pipeline one of its top priorities, with both the House and Senate moving forward with legislation to finally get this long overdue project underway.

But Keystone detractors are not giving up, still dismissing the jobs it would create as “temporary” and contending that now, with oil prices in decline, we don’t need the fuel.

They could not be more wrong, on both counts.

The privately funded Keystone XL pipeline will create jobs—thousands of them. The U.S. State Department puts the number at 42,000, most of them in construction and manufacturing.

Temporary jobs? Don’t tell that to construction workers who feed their families with a succession of project-dependent, short-term jobs similar to what Keystone XL would offer. Construction jobs are by nature temporary; that’s why we need to keep approving projects like this pipeline. The last permanent construction job was building the pyramids.

As for no longer needing oil sands crude, the relatively abundant supplies of fuel we currently have cannot be viewed as permanent. The only constant in the business of meeting America’s energy demand is change. Waiting until energy supplies run short to build a pipeline system capable of bringing Canadian crude to U.S. refineries is a shortsighted, risky strategy.

Building the Keystone XL pipeline will put Americans to work and increase U.S. energy security. Congress is doing the right thing and we all need to support their efforts, especially in light of a threatened Obama veto of pro-Keystone XL legislation.
