Dear Senator:

In the next few days, your vote will determine the fate of a pipeline that would link a vast oil deposit in Alberta, Canada to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. This pipeline, Keystone XL, would carry one of the most carbon-intensive sources of oil on the planet.

If you care about the climate, you have to care about stopping this dangerous pollutant and the pipeline that carries it. After extensive research, the EPA estimates that annual carbon pollution from the Keystone XL pipeline could be at least 82% higher than average crude refined in America -- if not more.

What does that number really mean? That's the same amount of pollution as adding 4.8 million cars to our roads: an additional 27 million metric tons of carbon pollution.

It doesn't matter where you live, or if the pipeline crosses into your home state. An increase of carbon pollution anywhere leads to climate change everywhere.

To put it simply: say NO to Keystone XL:

Sincerely,

Your Name
