Dear 5849376,

Tell the Trump Administration: No Keystone XL pipeline

Just days after taking office, Donald Trump set into motion the revival of the dangerous Keystone XL pipeline project – the dirty oil pipeline that millions of us helped to defeat during the Obama administration.1,2

Now, the Trump administration is carrying through with its threat and requesting public comment on its latest sham "Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement," a hastily-produced document ludicrously claiming the pipeline would only have "minor" impacts on clean air and water, endangered species and sacred indigenous sites.

We must make our voices heard before the Nov. 8 public comment deadline. This is our opportunity once again to demand that the Trump administration drop this plan immediately.

We already know the proposed Keystone XL pipeline will destroy habitat for endangered species, trample Native American rights, exacerbate the climate crisis and harm clean air and water. And if recent history is any guide, our fears are becoming reality.

In Nov. 2017, more than 407,000 gallons of oil leaked from an existing portion of the Keystone pipeline in North Dakota, twice as much as was previously thought.3 Even at the time, Reuters found that the "Keystone pipeline has leaked substantially more oil, and more often, in the United States than indicated in risk assessments the company provided to regulators before the project began operating in 2010," making clear that not only is this pipeline unsafe, its operators are saying whatever it takes to seek approval.4

We defeated this pipeline once before, and we can defeat it again. We only have a few more days to submit public comments, so we must stand in solidarity once again with local people, Native communities and activists on the ground who are fighting this dirty and and unsafe pipeline.
