Big oil’s friends in Congress are 4 votes away from passing a bill that would approve Keystone XL.

Wow, what a great action! Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to Denver. We had a great march and rally, including a real pipeline crew, speakers like Micah Parkin of 350 Colorado and 350 Boulder County, and lots of colorful signs and banners!
We know the the Obama Administration and the State Department have delayed the Keystone Pipeline decision yet again, but we made sure to show them that Colorado wants tar sands and extreme energy to stay right where it is: in the ground!
The news concerning toxic chemical pesticide-precipitated bee declines raises deep concerns for all of us who know what the disappearance of essential pollinator species will mean to the future security of our food supply and to our health and environment.
