I’m writing to ask you to join me this Sunday, November 6, at the White House in Washington, D.C., to stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Thousands of Sierra Club members and concerned citizens from all over the nation are coming to circle the White House, coming to send a clear and direct message to President Obama that tar sands oil is not in the national interest and that he must deny the presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.
We need your help to make this action a success.
Tar sands oil is some of the dirtiest, most destructive oil in the world. This pipeline is the frontline in the fight to stop climate change. Tar sands oil means massive greenhouse gas pollution, destruction of the Northern boreal forests – the lungs of North America – and oil spills that will threaten drinking water for millions and the livelihoods of farmers and ranchers across the U.S. heartland.
The Sierra Club and our many allies on all sides of the political spectrum have been working for several years to turn this presidential decision into a national movement – and we’ve succeeded. Time is now growing short, but we know that the White House has heard our concern. Now it’s time to drive our message home. Now the President needs to hear from YOU.
I’ll be in Washington on November 6 to circle the White House and make my voice count. I need your help to make this action a success.
Please make this event a priority and help us spread the word of this important event to your networks. I will be hosting a conference call with Bill McKibben on Tuesday, October 25 to tell you more about this event and campaign. Call (866) 501-6174 — 244 0879 1892#. I hope you can join us. RSVP for the call here.
Please urge your colleagues, friends, and families to join me on November 6. The Sierra Club will be hosting a series of five phone banks to promote the event. We need volunteers to help make this happen and ensure the greatest turnout possible. For details, please contact Jessica Eckdish.
I truly believe that November 6 will be an historic moment in our fight to save the planet.
