                                             It's classic. Wait till late on a 
Friday to announce a reprehensible decision in hopes of minimizing the uproar 
in response. But the extreme climate crisis doesn't take weekends off. And 
neither do we.


                                            A State Department report has just 
declared that the environmental impact of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline 
would be acceptable. This clears a path for Secretary of State John Kerry to 
give his approval to the pipeline.

President Obama we will not stand for this project moving forward!


                                            Scientists agree with the 
assessment of James Hansen that exploitation of the tar sands would be a 
catastrophe for the climate. This is a planetary emergency -- and right now 
this is a political emergency.


                                            Take action now!


                                            "Significant impacts to most 
resources are not expected along the proposed Project route assuming the 
following," reads the State Department report, before listing a series of 
improbable assumptions.


         No wonder they waited for Friday afternoon!
