No Tar Sands Oil On American Soil!
ENERGY GIANT TRANSCANADA WANTS TO RAM A 1,700-MILE PIPELINE THROUGH AMERICA’S HEARTLAND TO PUMP NEARLY ONE MILLION BARRELS A DAY OF THEIR TOXIC TAR SANDS SLUDGE TO OIL REFINERIES IN TEXAS.
THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE IS ON RECORD SAYING THEY ARE “INCLINED” TO APPROVE THIS FOREIGN PIPELINE SCHEME ON NATIONAL INTEREST GROUNDS.
TRANSCANADA’S “KEYSTONE XL” PIPELINE IS NOT IN OUR NATIONAL INTEREST!
COSTLIER FUEL: Keystone XL is projected to raise gasoline and diesel fuel prices in the Midwest by up to 10 to 20 cents per gallon.
FEWER JOBS: A recent Cornell University study concluded that Keystone XL may destroy more jobs than it creates.
HURTS AMERICA: Keystone XL would undermine the green industrial revolution and the millions of permanent green jobs it would create.
OIL SPILLS: Tar sands pipelines are 16 times more likely to leak than conventional oil pipelines due to the corrosive, acidic content of toxic tar sands sludge.
WATER POLLUTION: Keystone XL threatens the Ogallala Aquifer – the drinking water supply of millions of Americans and source of one-third of America’s farmland irrigation water.
CORPORATE BULLYING: TransCanada is bullying U.S. citizens who don’t cooperate with threats of eminent domain.
OIL ADDICTION: Keystone XL is being planned as an export pipeline, but even if the fuel were sold to the U.S., it would only make America more, not less, addicted to foreign oil.
DESTROYS LIVES: People living below tar sands mines have been documented with high rates of cancer, while others living near tar sands oil refineries are exposed to toxic air emissions.
THREATENS CULTURES: Destructive tar sands mining and Keystone XL threaten Native American and Canadian First Nations homelands and cultures.
IMPERILS HUMANITY: Scientists warn that burning all the world's tar sands oil, and other fossil fuels, threatens the future existence of the human species.
AMERICA’S PATH TO PROSPERITY LIES IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DOMESTIC RENEWABLE ENERGY TO POWER OUR HOMES, BUSINESSES AND VEHICLES – NOT IN ENABLING PIPELINES TRANSPORTING THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE OIL ON EARTH.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DO HEREBY CALL UPON PRESIDENT OBAMA TO DENY TRANSCANADA A PRESIDENTIAL PERMIT TO BUILD AND OPERATE THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE.
