Stop the pipeline to pollution in my state
Dear [Decision Maker],
The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry up to 900,000 barrels of this dirty tar sands oil every day. As a resident of a state directly affected by the pipeline's route I think my fellow citizens deserve an opportunity to share our concerns with the State Department in person. Please hold a public hearing about the pipeline in our state capitol with plenty of advance notice.
The Environmental Impact Statement for the Keystone XL Project has to include the full environmental impacts of producing, transporting, and refining tar sands oil, including global warming pollution, destruction of the boreal forest and its wildlife, use and pollution of water, deterioration of air quality and public health, and the rights of indigenous groups. The alternatives to importing one of the world's dirtiest fuels, including improvements in fuel efficiency, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, advanced biofuels, and mass transit must also be evaluated in the Environmental Impact Statement.
