Now is the time for us to stand against what could turn out to be a major climate and environmental atrocity.
With the recent release of the State Department’s final report on the Keystone XL pipeline (KXL), President Obama could be one step closer to approving this toxic project.
If approved, KXL would transport more than 800,000 barrels of tar sands oil daily across the U.S. from Canada to the Gulf Coast. And just to be clear - This is not oil. This is pipe-eating, planet-cooking, water-fouling goo that nobody knows what to do with.
Today marks the first day of the State Department's new public comment period on the report, which invites the entire public to share their comments and concerns about the pipeline.
Watch Rebuild The Dream president Van Jones give his public comment against KXL and debunk three popular myths about "this special interest boondoggle."
