Video and News Clips: Say No to Keystone XL

We've got two great videos on why the State Department should reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline. First up - here's Sierra Club President Robin Mann testifying at Friday's public hearing on the pipeline in Washington, DC.


Second, check out Kate Colarulli, Associate Director of the Sierra Club Beyond Oil Campaign, talking to Russia Today's Alyona Show about why Keystone XL is a bad idea.


Finally, here are two articles you should check out about Friday's public hearing on Keystone XL. Mother Jones reporter Kate Sheppard does a great job showing how the union members in attendance (who are FOR the pipeline) started changing their minds after hearing the testimony and chatting with opponents.

And then our own Conservation Director Sarah Hodgdon got quoted in this Fox Business news article on the hearing:

The first person to speak was Sarah Hodgdon, director of conservation for the environmental group Sierra Club. Her place in the speaker line-up had been reserved by one of 65 youth activists who slept in the building where the hearing was held, the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Activists arrived around midnight and slept on the floor without any blankets, Sierra Club spokesman Eddie Scher said.

Hodgdon said the pipeline didn't serve the best interests of the U.S. and said "the sole purpose of this pipeline is to deliver profits to a foreign oil company, TransCanada."

Stay tuned - the State Department's decision on this dirty tar sands oil pipeline is expected within a few weeks.
