This is a turning point – President Obama comments on Keystone XL

This is a turning point.

Yesterday President Obama made his first comments about the Keystone XL pipeline. Take a minute to read what he told a Nebraska television station that asked him about the pipeline:

The State Department’s in charge of analyzing this, because there’s a pipeline coming in from Canada. They’ll be giving me a report over the next several months, and, you know, my general attitude is, what is best for the American people? What’s best for our economy both short term and long term? But also, what’s best for the health of the American people?

When pressed about how the potential for new jobs plays in to his decision, President Obama said:

I think folks in Nebraska, like all across the country, aren’t going to say to themselves, “We’ll take a few thousand jobs if it means that our kids are potentially drinking water that would damage their health …”

Getting the President to step up and own this decision is an important victory that would not be possible without your hard work. We’ve come a long way from a few dozen people sitting in on the hot August concrete outside the White House.

Of course, the fight continues: the President has said that this is his decision, which means we need to make sure he stands up to the pressure from big oil and rejects the pipeline. Now that we know the President is paying attention, it’s important to speak loud and clear.

Can you send an email to President Obama to thank him for stepping up, and to let him know that we expect nothing less than for him to reject Keystone XL? Click here to send an email.

    Set in a small coastal Massachusetts town named Capeside Dawson’s Creek tells the story of four teenagers as they struggle through adolescence. This is particularly true for 15-year-olds Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) an introspective dreamer and Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) a precocious tomboy unaware of her beauty. Best friends since childhood they are about to enter that confusing time in life where nothing is the way it was and nothing is as it seems…
