On February 17, thousands of Virginians joined 35,000 citizens from across the country at a rally in DC to say NO to the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. If this destructive project is built, NASA scientist James Hanson has characterized it as "game over" for our efforts to fight climate change. 

The President and the federal agencies he leads must take action to address climate change and reduce carbon pollution. President Obama needs Senators like Warner and Kaine to support him in exercising this authority to address climate change, with actions like rejecting the dirty KXL tar sands pipeline and reducing carbon pollution from power plants.

Please send the below message to Senators Warner and Kaine urging them to support the President in making the right decision.  After you send that e-mail a page will pop up with the two Senator's phone numbers so you can call them, too.  Thank you!

Please help President Obama make the right decision

Dear [Decision Maker],

On February 17, thousands of Virginians joined 35,000 citizens from across the country at a rally in DC to say NO to the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. If this destructive project is built, NASA scientist James Hanson has characterized it as "game over" for our efforts to fight climate change.

The President and the federal agencies he leads must take action to address climate change and reduce carbon pollution. President Obama needs Senators like you to support him in exercising this authority to address climate change, with actions like rejecting Keystone XL and reducing carbon pollution from power plants.

I know you understand the serious threat of climate change to Virginia, our country and the world. That is why I am asking you to write President Obama to urge him to deny a permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Please tell President Obama you will stand by him when he rejects Keystone XL and says no to dirty fuels like tar sands and coal. Please let me know of your position on the KXL tar sands pipeline and if you are willing to write President Obama to urge him to stop this project.

Sincerely,
