human friends! the state department deadline for public comments about the keystone XL pipeline is
tomorrow RIGHT NOW THIS MINUTE, so we know snail mail is probably no longer an option for you! but wait! here is a handy link where you can go and do this online, RIGHT THE HELL NOW!!!
the blue comment button is in the top corner! click on that, and go there NOW!!!
oh, and here is another idea! write directly to the human person barack obama! yes, we know, he hasn’t had a very good track record, but on the other fin, this pipeline would have already been completely built if not for the unified efforts of so many people! so write to him and let him know you oppose this horrible idea! remind him of the following:
you know that there will be no jobs created here in the united states.
you know the risk of environmental hazard is extremely high— in fact, inevitable, since there is no such thing as a pipeline that does not leak.
you know that this type of oil extraction is bad not just for america but for the entire planet.
here is the address!
The White House
President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington DC 20500
and here’s another helpful link, so you can email the president if you don’t want to use the snail mail!
the rumor is president obama will make an official decision in the next few months, so you can still write to him! and please know, if he decides to go ahead with this travesty, that isn’t the final decision either— thousands of people have pledged to stop this pipeline project, and several tribes have already erected encampments to block progress. but it would be nice if he would just say NO.
so write and encourage him to do so! and also, before midnight, please go to the website at the state department and click that button and send them a message too!
