Dear 5849376,

Submit a comment: No Keystone XL pipeline

We thought we had defeated the Keystone XL pipeline during Pres. Obama's term, but Trump and his oil industry friends are trying to bring it back.

Now Trump's State Department is taking public comments on the dangerous plan and the deadline to submit our comments is this Monday, June 25.

Millions of us have opposed the Keystone XL pipeline for years – we can't give up now. Submit your comment now so that we can flood this docket with our voices and create a strong public record of opposition.

Tell the State Department: Conduct a full, rigorous environmental review of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Click here to submit your comment.

Trump wasted no time – days after taking office, he signed an executive order aimed at reviving the reckless pipeline project.1 Two months later, he officially approved it.2 Now he wants to limit the project's required environmental review to just the newest section of the pipeline. But the last full environmental review was in 2014 – it's long out of date.3

The existing Keystone pipeline spills oil far more often than regulators predicted.4 In November, a leak in South Dakota spilled more than 5,000 barrels of oil. The line has already leaked twice in that state, where TransCanada had initially predicted a spill "no more than once every 41 years."5

We know the pipeline isn't safe – and we cannot allow the Trump administration to rush its completion.
