President Obama just got back from his vacation and was greeted by over 140 people sitting in at the White House this morning to protest the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. This is by far the biggest day of the Tar Sands Action, and the biggest sit-in at the White House in memory. The group includes Dr. James Hansen, NASA's most important climate scientist, and Phil Radford, the Executive Director of Greenpeace, plus dozens of faith leaders from every possible religious tradition.
They're still out there now, sitting in, and I think we should let our President know that they're not alone. If we reach out to him now, he'll know that there is a movement behind them, and that will make us much harder to ignore. Can you call the White House and tell President Obama to stand with us and oppose the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline?
