Call President Obama!
If President Obama grants a permit to the Keystone XL Pipeline, it will fast track the consumption of vast amounts of environmentally devastating Canadian tar sands oil, dealing a catastrophic blow to our chance of returning earth to a stable climate.
Obama alone has the power to stop this pipeline by signing (or NOT signing) a certificate of "national interest"--and he can't blame Congress for getting in his way. We must get louder and do everything in our power to ensure he makes the right choice.

Sample Call Script:
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I live in [YOUR TOWN], [YOUR STATE].
I'm calling to ask President Obama to reject the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline. Communities along the pipeline route, and tens of thousands of people across the country are against it, and over 500 concerned people have been arrested in front of the White House -- and I want to say that it's irresponsible that the recent Environmental Impact Statement didn't mention the threat of climate change.
Thank you for your time!
