Yesterday's Senate Vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline


I just wanted to say thank you to the senate for not passing the bill to force approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. To be honest, I am amazed and very thankful for this outcome.

Please research the issue for yourself. Look at how few permanent jobs will be formed, at how many (more) Americans will have their land taken away through eminent domain, how unlikely it is that the fuel will be used in North America, how destructive other tar sands spills have been in the United States, and just how environmentally damaging tar sands extraction, transport, and refining are, and follow the link below to encourage our president to fully reject the pipeline so that we can put our energies into producing renewable energy and jobs that will support us into the future rather than lead to our destruction.

350.org message to President Obama to reject the pipeline

May you and those who follow you thrive in health and abundance.
