Green America members (both local, and from as far away as North Carolina and Florida) gathered at our office in the morning of the February 17 rally to warm up and head out together. We joined tens of thousands who came out for this historic event, calling on President Obama to live up to his climate promises and stop the Keystone XL pipeline. Check out reflections on the rally from Green America policy director Fran Teplitz.
But the State Department's most recent environmental impact statement found that the pipeline was "unlikely to have a stubstantial impact" on the tar sands or the climate. The Department disregarded warning cries from some of America's leading climate scientist about the dangers of this project.
President Obama still hasn't announced his decision on the pipeline. Keep the pressure on --- your business voice is needed to oppose Keystone XL.
