Tell the Nebraska Public Service Commission to REJECT Keystone XL!
TransCanada has submitted a new application for a permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline with the Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC). The PSC is now taking public comments related to their application, but the comment period ends on Friday.
We’ve written a sample letter, but feel free to add your own reasons why you’re opposed to Keystone XL. As a reminder, here are a few reasons we’re opposed:
- KXL has no place in a future where we avoid the worst impacts of climate change. If this pipeline is built, the tar sands oil flowing through it could be responsible for as much carbon dioxide pollution as 50 coal plants.
- Keystone XL is a pipeline through America, not to it. It is an export pipeline that imperils thousands of miles of the U.S. heartland and countless waterways, while the tar sands oil it carries is destined for overseas markets.
- Keystone XL would incentivize even more production of the dirtiest oil on the planet: The Canadian tar sands.
Send your message to the PSC calling on them to reject any permit related to the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.
