Keystone XL fails your own test â there is simply no question it âsignificantly exacerbates carbon pollution.â You must find that this pipeline is not in the National Interest and reject it.* Automatically add your name: [image: Sign the petition â] <http://act.credoaction.com/go/3248?t=1&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp> Dear Scott, [image: Stop Keystone XL] <http://act.credoaction.com/go/3249?t=2&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp> Today the State Department released its final report on the environmental impact of the Keystone XL pipeline. The headlines in the mainstream media faithfully repeated the oil industryâs spin. Itâs true that the oil industry lobbyists did everything they could to sway this report to their liking â and weâre going to have to fight hard in the coming months to overcome their influence. But the real news is that this report â despite being written by a deeply compromised contractor that was practically handpicked by TransCanada and the American Petroleum Institute â still couldnât refute one crucial fact. The State Department admitted that âthe total direct and indirect emissions associated with the proposed Project would contribute to cumulative global GHG emissions.â *And this is all the president needs in order to know that Keystone XL fails his climate test.*1 *Urge President Obama to reject Keystone XL.

And, Keystone XL fails the presidentâs climate test. There is simply no question it âsignificantly exacerbates carbon pollution.â With the release of the State Departmentâs Final Environmental Impact Statement (or FEIS) we are finally in a sprint to the finish in our fight to stop Keystone XL. It kicks off the State Departmentâs 90-day National Interest Determination â a process involving other agencies, that should be more difficult for the oil industry to corrupt, and will allow Secretary Kerry to step in and show climate leadership. Then, the final decision will be solely in the hands of the president. It is a decision that has wide implications for his presidency, and the progress we can make fighting climate change. He will have to decide which side he is on: Will he do whatâs best for big oil or will he do whatâs clearly in our national interest and reject this pipeline? *President Obama's decision on Keystone XL will come down to the pressure we put on him in the next three months. Take action now to tell him once and for all to reject the "game over for the climate" pipeline.

We will be waiting eagerly for this investigation to be made public.* The next few months will offer Secretary of State John Kerry an opportunity to step up and be a leader for the climate during the National Interest Determination process, when he will make an official recommendation to the president. *But in the end, this is all about President Obama.* And in the next few months, we'll be ramping up direct citizen pressure on him to ensure he makes the right call. We're starting next week, organizing *KXL protest vigils <http://act.credoaction.com/go/3251?zipcode=55404&t=5&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp>*across the country. These are a crucial opportunities to speak out, and you'll hear more about them in the coming days. Then, we'll be kicking the *Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance <http://act.credoaction.com/go/772?t=6&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp>* into high gear with our partners Rainforest Action Network and the Other 98%. More than 76,000 people have already pledged to risk arrest if necessary to stop approval of Keystone XL. And we'll be preparing for the State Department's coming National Interest Determination, and making sure that President Obama knows a massive wave of civil disobedience from his best supporters will be imminent if his administration signals it is moving toward approval of Keystone XL. And that's just the beginning. The oil industry may have been able to largely corrupt the State Departmentâs environmental analysis, but it canât change the facts and we wonât let them stop our activism. This is an all-in moment to get President Obama to reject Keystone XL. *Click the link below to automatically sign the petition urging President Obama to reject Keystone XL:* *http://act.credoaction.com/go/3248?t=8&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp <http://act.credoaction.com/go/3248?t=7&akid=9881.3204135.G1wDHp>* Thanks for fighting Keystone XL.
