Canadians: Tell President Obama That We Support Clean Energy, Not Pipelines
The David Suzuki Foundation is on a letter-writing campaign to tell President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry that Canadians do not want to see the Keystone XL pipeline built. By adding your name and address and clicking on the “submit” button (how easy is that!), you will be sending the following letter directly to the above-mentioned politicians:
As a Canadian concerned about climate change, I am writing to express my views directly to you.
I do not share the belief of my federal government that continued oil sands development should be Canada’s priority and our path for the future. I urge you to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
I support strong action to fight climate change and a shift to investment in clean energy, by every leader, in every country.
The priorities set in Ottawa and Washington reach across our planet. It is not only our economies that are interdependent; our air, water, and our future are bound together and will be defined by our ability to act on the most important issue facing the planet.
Canadians and Americans are united for a clean, prosperous future together.
To “sign” this letter and tell President Obama and Secretary Kerry that you support strong action on climate change, follow this link.
Unfortunately, you need a Canadian address to send a letter. However, if you are a fellow blogger in Germany, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, India (you all know who you are!) or any other country, you can still help by writing a short post about the letter writing campaign on your respective blogs. That way, the message can reach as many Canadians as possible.
Although this is a North American decision, we all know that its impacts will be global.
