We did it. 1 million+ comments to stop the pipeline.
The comment period is now closed, but we hit our goal -- thank you to everyone who sent a message, shared and organized to flood the State Dept. with comments. Let's keep rolling!
A new report shows that Keystone XL would carry 181 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, equal to 51 coal plants worth of carbon. Another way to put it: that's as much CO2 as 37.7 million cars to the road -- more cars than are currently driving in California, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, New York and Florida combined.
But the State Department's initial report on the pipeline says it would have negligible climate impacts. Can you send a message to the State Department to tell them that we can't afford this pipeline?
