House Republicans have once again voted to force approval of Keystone XL in the Transportation bill. Now, they're trying to strong arm Senate Leadership into including Keystone XL in the final version. As Chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee, Sen. Boxer is a key decision maker. Urge Sen. Boxer not to cave to Republicans on Keystone XL.
From an email by CREDO:
Maybe Republicans missed the memo that more and more Americans are connecting the dots on the record heat of our last winter and our last summer to global warming.2
Maybe they missed the story about the masses of lesion-covered fish, and deformed, eyeless shrimp that Gulf fisherman are finding in the area of the Deepwater Horizon spill.3
Or maybe they are just so owned by Big Oil, so selfish, and so clueless as to be completely incapable of understanding what serving the American people should actually mean — or at the very least why a thorough evaluation process would be necessary for a project this dangerous.
