Dear Melissa,

Thank President Obaam for standing up to Big Oil and urge him to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline!  stop keystone xl

In 2011, we were truly inspired by President Obama's bold decision to delay and reevaluate the dirty, dangerous Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.

But we now face attacks from greedy oil companies and their cronies in Congress who want to rubberstamp this project, all in the name of greater profits for Big Oil.

Tell President Obama we stand strong with his decision to delay the dirty Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline and that we will fight together in 2012 to reject the project once and for all.

President Obama did the right thing by putting the brakes on this dangerous 1,700 mile oil pipeline that would run from Canada through America's heartland and put our land, climate and drinking water at risk. Now the President can put American families ahead of Big Oil profits by rejecting Keystone XL.

2012 will be a seminal year in our fight to move our country Beyond Oil. Big Oil and their cronies in Congress know this as well. And they're in a panic. We're already starting to see a barrage of misinformation. Republican House Majority Leader John Boehner and the other Big Oil allies in Congress are trying to scam the American people with an expensive, unnecessary and dangerous tar sands pipeline to deliver billions in profits to oil companies.

Thank President Obama for his bold leadership on Keystone XL and tell him he has your support standing up to Big Oil.

The pipeline will not help with energy security, it will create far fewer jobs than promised, the oil brought to the U.S. will be shipped overseas tax-free and there are huge risks to our waterways, farmland and climate - TransCanada's earlier pipeline spilled 14 times in the first 12 months of operation. 2012 will be the year we decide where we stand as a country on moving Beyond Oil. 

Will you start 2012 by taking a stand against Big Oil? Support strong leadership from President Obama, support his bold decision to stand firm against Big Oil and their cronies in Congress on Keystone XL. Email the President today!

Thanks for all that you do to protect the environment,

Sarah Hodgdon
Sierra Club Conservation Director
