Call President Obama: Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline!

If President Obama grants a permit to the Keystone XL Pipeline, it will fast track the consumption of vast amounts of environmentally devastating Canadian tar sands oil, dealing a catastrophic blow to our chance of returning earth to a stable climate.
It is President Obama's decision alone to grant or deny the permit required for construction. The President needs to know we're paying attention.

President Obama: 202-456-1111

If you live in the DC area, consider joining the ongoing protest in front of the WH, every day at 11a until Sept 3. Over 160 folks have been arrested so far while exercising their constitutionally-protected right to peacefully protest, so be forewarned.

Postscript: Check out Amy Goodman on the subject.

Please DO call, even though I guess most of us reading this don't have a whole lotta faith that BO will do the right thing!
