Tell President Obama to Stop Construction of the Southern Leg of Keystone XL

Climate Crisis Solutions

Last spring, President Obama made a special trip on Air Force One to the “Pipeline Crossroads of the World” to call for fast-track approval of the southern (OK-TX) leg of TransCanada’s Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Sign this petition to tell President Obama to stop Keystone XL in its entirety. This means not only denying TransCanada a presidential permit to build the northern leg of their tar sands pipeline, but using his presidential powers to immediately halt construction of the southern leg of Keystone XL in Texas and Oklahoma.

If the southern leg of TransCanada’s pipeline is allowed to be completed, the fuse to the tar sands "carbon bomb" will be lit.

By signing this petition your name will be added to the comments below and sent to President Obama.

Show your solidarity with the landowners and activists fighting this pipeline by signing this petition today.
