A lot of boxes

Dear Friend,

Wow. In just 24 hours, more than 160,000 CREDO Activists signed the petition telling the Senate not to force approval of Keystone XL.

In all, 780,000 people from groups like 350, MoveOn, the League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club and dozens of others signed the petition.

They were just delivered to the Senate this afternoon. I thought you'd enjoy 350's photos of the delivery. (Keep in mind, eight of those boxes were full of signatures of CREDO Activists — and one of them had yours.)


Meanwhile, Senator Hoeven yesterday formally introduced his amendment to the transportation bill. We're waiting for information on when it will come up for a vote, but as soon as we know the best way you can help stop it, we'll let you know.

Thanks for helping to build such an amazing show of grassroots opposition to Keystone XL.

We need an urgent show of opposition to block Keystone XL in the Senate.

Dear Friend,

The Senate could vote as early as tomorrow on a plan to greenlight construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Despite President Obama's rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline a few weeks ago, Republicans in Congress are once again engaging in hostage-taking. Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) is trying to attach a measure to the transportation bill that would force approval of Keystone XL.

Tragically, some moderate Democrats appear to be playing along — so this bill could have enough votes to pass.

No evaluation process. No National Interest Determination. No new route identified through Nebraska.

To demonstrate a massive, urgent, grassroots backlash, our friends at 350 have organized a 24-hour petition drive to the Senate. Nearly three dozen groups are emailing their members right now, and 350's Bill McKibben will announce the effort tonight on the Colbert Report.

Help us get 500,000 signatures in 24 hours against Keystone XL. Click here to automatically sign this petition to the Senate.

Republicans and some Democrats in Congress are so owned by Big Oil, that they are willing to bypass the pipeline review process designed to protect Americans from its very real danger.

Our grassroots pressure forced President Obama to reject the pipeline when Republicans tried to force a decision in 60 days. He said it wasn't enough time for the thorough evaluation process we need.

Republicans are claiming that incomplete process was enough. But just last week the State Department Inspector General released a report finding a lack of technical and scientific expertise at the State Department to evaluate the impacts of the pipeline.1 So clearly, this pipeline hasn't been adequately evaluated.

We need to show the Senate the huge opposition to Keystone XL. Click here to automatically sign this petition to the Senate.

Our Congress should be in the business of acting in America's interest. Instead, their business appears to be Big Oil's business.

Please help make a big statement today to remind our Senators who they really work for, and show huge opposition to this ill-conceived, disastrous pipeline. And please share it widely so we make as large an impact as possible over the next 24 hours, and Bill McKibben has a large number of signatures to announce tonight on the Colbert Report.

Thank you for showing urgent opposition to Keystone XL.
