New Ads Urge President to Stop Dirty Oil Pipeline
No Tar Sands Oil Campaign Highlights Obama's Role
Bringing to light President Obama's critical role in stopping the Keystone XL pipeline, the No Tar Sands Oil campaign has placed TV and radio ads in key outlets across the country.
The ads urge the President to stop the next oil disaster by opposing the proposed Keystone XL -- a 2,000-mile dirty tar sands oil pipeline that would run from Canada through six American heartland states to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
President Obama and the U.S. State Department are now considering whether or not to require an additional Environmental Impact Assessment, as requested by the Environmental Protection Agency and several members of Congress.
If built, Keystone XL will carry 900,000 barrels per day of the world's dirtiest oil through through America's agricultural heartland, the Missouri and Niobrara Rivers, the Ogallala aquifer, sage grouse habitat, walleye fisheries and more. If built, public water supplies, crop lands, wildlife habitats and recreational opportunities will all be at risk of dangerous tar sands oil leaks.
The advertising campaign will include primetime television ads on CNN, MSNBC, and Comedy Central's The Daily Show and Colbert Report. Additionally, the campaign includes flash and banner ads on major political websites such as Politico, and radio ads on the major drive time news radio in Washington, DC, WTOP.

Send a message to President Obama urging him to keep dangerous tar sands oil pipelines out of America's Heartland.
