Take Action: Protect Alaska Wildlife! -- Read more. Take Action: We Deserve a Say on Keystone XL!

The Army Corp of Engineers is currently considering TransCanada's application to build the southern segment of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Keystone XL's southern segment would connect to Keystone 1, in Cushing, Oklahoma, and carry tar sands to the refineries and ports in Houston and Port Arthur, Texas. This segment of the Keystone XL pipeline would still carry up to 900,000 barrels a day of toxic tar sands sludge across hundreds of bodies of water in Texas and Oklahoma.

Tell the Army Corp of Engineers that the public deserves the chance to comment on the southern segment of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Tell Congress and your governor today that Americans want safer bike options to break our addiction to oil!

The Sierra Club is touring Appalachia's coal regions this week with anti-coal activists from India. The activists are meeting with local communities engaged in similar struggles against coal corporations to build a global coalition to fight back against dirty coal.

"What we had seen as lush green mountains from the ground turned to be a cancerous spread of brown eating into the green verdant landscape," said India activist Debi Goenka.
