Tell Secretary of State John Kerry: Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline

It's still entirely unclear if the Keystone XL pipeline can be built and managed safely. Moreover, its construction would delay the critical conversion to a non-fossil fuel based economy on which our future depends. Secretary of State John Kerry, who once spoke out bravely against the Vietnam War and who has stressed the dangers of climate change, could stop it. Sometime in the next couple of months, the State Department will issue a final environmental impact statement on the pipeline, followed by a determination on whether it is “in the national interest." Sign our open letter urging Secretary Kerry to consider his legacy and to find the courage to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
