President Obama: It's time to reject Keystone XL

Yesterday, approval of the Keystone XL pipeline lost narrowly in a Senate vote. Right after the vote, Senator Mitch McConnell vowed to make it one of the first orders of business for the Republican-controlled Senate in 2015.1 That's why we're joining forces with our friends at and other progressive organizations to urge President Obama to veto the pipeline! Click here to sign the petition today.
Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Sara Shor of the organization, and I started a petition to President Barack Obama, which says:

The Keystone XL pipeline will contribute to climate change and fails the climate test. Don't wait to make your mark on history. Stop the pipeline now.

Now is the time for leadership. The Keystone XL pipeline clearly fails the president's climate test—and we now know that Big Oil doesn't have the support needed to approve the pipeline.

President Obama has the support he needs—from science and from the people—to reject the pipeline.

An 830,000-barrel-per-day pipeline of the world's dirtiest oil will obviously contribute to climate change.

Send a message to President Obama to stop Keystone XL now!
