Today Chicago, Indiana and Michigan residents joined thousands from around the country rallying to continue to urge President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and other tar sands projects that threaten the health of community members and further destabilize our climate.
Six years ago, fighting for what I believed in meant knocking on doors in the cold to help a freshman senator named Barack Obama become President.
Yesterday, it meant standing shoulder-to-shoulder with a fired-up crowd of activists to demand that President Obama keep his word on climate change. Building the Keystone XL pipeline would mean breaking his promise to slow the rise of the oceans – a promise that kept a lot of us going through the late nights and long hours it took to get him where he is.
This past Monday, dirty tar sands oil spilled into Lake Michigan, the source of drinking water for over 7 million people in Chicago.
Chicago is already seeing first hand the immediate effects of tar sands development. It is more important than ever that we tell President Obama to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, and stop tar sands development!
Fixing the RPS would make sure money the state has that by law should be spent on renewable energy actually is spent on renewable energy. We’ll be gathering petition signatures at the Fullerton L stop on Wednesday, March 26, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.
