Do you know what NoKXL means?
NoKXL means you want a safe climate for you and your children.
NoKXL means you think producing safe, clean, renewable energy at home is more important than digging up dirty energy and exporting it for Big Oil’s profits.
NoKXL means you stand with the ranchers and farmers of Nebraska, the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, more than 50,000 people who have pledged civil disobedience and literally millions more.
NoKXL means "No to the Keystone XL Pipeline". We’re heading into the critical last phase of the campaign here, and we need your help in spreading the word to ensure the Obama administration rejects the dirty, dangerous Keystone XL pipeline.
Oil Change International has played a vital role in exposing the many reasons the Administration should reject the Keystone XL pipeline. We released new analysis showing the pipeline’s greenhouse gas emissions are even greater than previously thought. We showed that the pipeline would be used to fuel refineries that are already exporting most of their oil around the world. And we exposed the hypocrisy of building more oil pipelines while promising to address climate change.i
But as evident as the reasons for rejection are, the influence of the fossil fuel industry is just as clear in the debate over Keystone XL. We have reasons and facts and good people like you. They have money. So it goes.
Presenting clear arguments for rejecting this pipeline backed by data is a fundamental first step, but we know it’s not enough. We need the many of you, because the industry has so much money.
As one member of our team said to me recently: “Loosen the bolts on the kitchen sink. We need to be ready to throw everything.” We know that Big Oil is all in on this one and we know we need to be too. So we're working with our friends at The Other 98% to spread the word as far and wide as we can.
When you’re done signing up, please spread the word:
Forward this email to 10 of your friends.
Shout it from the rooftops.
We have to show the Obama administration just how big this movement is. The only way we can combat the millions in Big Oil money in DC is by bringing even more people to the front. And with your help, we’ll do just that. Onwards, Steve
