OK

We have been hearing a lot about scandals recently.

But if President Obama approves a pipeline equal to more than seven new coal-fired power plants? And does so just months after promising to act AGAINST climate change?

Now THAT'S a scandal.

President Obama said in his second inaugural address that failing to act on climate change would "betray future generations." Now, it looks like he will do exactly that by approving the Keystone XL pipeline.

I made a new video about what is at stake, please take a look:

(I'd appreciate any help getting this out there! Please share this video on Facebook or on Twitter. Thank you!!)

If President Obama truly thinks this project is good for America, he should embrace it publicly. He should call it the "Obama Tar Sands Pipeline." He should show up at the ribbon cutting. If he refuses to do that and still approves Keystone XL, the first thing that pipeline will run over is his credibility on climate.
