Kill Keystone: the Carbon Mega-Bomb
To US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry:
We were encouraged when Secretary Kerry said that climate change is perhaps the world's most fearsome Weapon of Mass Destruction, and committed to provide US leadership to stop it. We call on you now to reject the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline to uphold that leadership. The world is calling on you to act -- this decision is a referendum on your leadership to protect our planet.

If approved, the Keystone XL pipeline will help pump billions of dollars into the pockets of a few companies... but also millions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere. It's been called "a fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the planet". Bold public action has delayed it once, and a court ruling the other week has dealt a serious blow to the project. Now, if we act fast and in massive numbers, we can help kill it for good.
Secretary of State John Kerry, responsible for the US's relationship with the world, has opened a final round of comments from the public. Avaaz members from every country will turn it into a truly global referendum by flooding the consultation with a million voices calling on Kerry to kill Keystone and save the planet. We only have days until it closes -- sign now!
