President-elect Joe Biden has promised to cancel the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline once he’s in office. But in Canada, Justin Trudeau, Jason Kenney and Big Oil have said they’re making saving this dirty oil pipeline a top priority.
To counter this, we’re joining our friends at 350.org in asking people across North America to sign this open letter urging Biden to stand strong. Your voice is needed to urge him to listen to the overwhelming majority of people in Canada and the U.S. who want bold climate action and massive investments in good, green jobs.
Will you add your name and tell Biden that we don’t need another dangerous pipeline?
Open letter to Joe Biden
Dear Mr. Biden,
I want to make it clear that all across North America, people support your promise to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline.
Like you, I believe this is the moment to tackle the climate crisis and create millions of green jobs – the Keystone XL pipeline doesn’t do either of those things. This pipeline is still what renowned NASA climate scientist James Hansen called it nearly a decade ago – “a fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the planet”.
You and former President Barack Obama were right when your administration rejected Keystone XL back in 2015. Now, it’s time to do the right thing again.
Cancelling the Keystone XL pipeline is a necessary part of ensuring that both the United States and Canada do our parts to meet the climate crisis. We ask that you do what’s right and stop this pipeline once and for all.
