Just trying to get the word out about this rally for those that don't know.

KeystoneXL is very dangerous and we must stop it.

This pipeline will hurt the Obama Presidency and more importantly, our environment.

If Obama is serious about tackling climate change, KeystoneXL is a big test.

There is a lot of pressure on Obama to pass this disaster waiting to happen via the energy and oil lobby and the false narrative that the pipeline will create jobs.

So it's up to us to counter that pressure and let Obama know that the American people do not want this dangerous, faulty, carbon producing pipeline in our country.

Below is more information about the rally and some facts about the KeystoneXl pipeline that highlight our need to make sure it never sees the light of day.

This is one of those times when people power and grassroots organizing must defeat corporate and lobbyist money.

We've done it before, we can do it again!

Some facts about KeystoneXL complete with sources. Please feel free to spread these around and get the word about about what a huge mistake building this pipeline would be.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
