a Million Americans to US Senate: Say NO to Keystone XL
D.C. – At 6:54pm ET on Monday night, just under seven hours into a 24-hour
petition drive, environmental and public interest groups smashed through their
goal of sending the Senate over 500,000 messages opposing the Keystone XL tar
drive will continue until 12:00pm on Tuesday. At 3:00 pm, environmental groups
will deliver boxes containing the 500,000 plus signatures directly to Sens.
Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, issued the following statement:
don’t want this oil, they don’t want this risk, and they don’t want this
political circus. The President stood up to Big Oil and rejected the Keystone
XL tar sands pipeline. If Republicans in Congress were genuinely concerned
about jobs they would have passed the jobs package last fall. If they were
genuinely concerned about building America they would pass a clean
transportation bill. And if they were genuinely concerned about the American
people they would get out of the business of approving dangerous oil industry
