Tell Democratic Presidential Candidates: Take the "NoKXL Pledge"

Take Action:

Your comment will be delivered to 2020 Democratic presidential candidates:

We urge all of the 2020 Democratic candidates for President to take the "NoKXL Pledge":

  • If elected, I pledge to take executive action on Day One to stop any construction on the Keystone XL pipeline — no matter what — and revoke the existing presidential permits issued unilaterally by President Trump for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, sending both projects back to relevant federal agencies to undergo legitimate environmental review and Tribal consultations.

  • I pledge to direct all federal agencies (State Dept., FERC, Army Corps) to submit these two projects, as well as all new pipeline and energy infrastructure projects to a true climate test, and reject permits for any project that would exacerbate our climate crisis.

  • I pledge to protect the property rights of farmers and ranchers from eminent domain abuse, and to honor the treaties the U.S. Government has signed with sovereign Tribal Nations.

    We’ve got a very important question for the Democratic presidential candidates about a pressing issue that a newly elected president will have full authority over on Day One in office: Will you reverse Donald Trump’s reckless, unilateral decision and take action to permanently block the Keystone XL (KXL) tar sands oil pipeline?

    We need candidates to take this pledge and fiercely oppose climate-wrecking pipelines like Keystone XL because the science is crystal clear — we can’t afford to build ANY new fossil fuel infrastructure. We need candidates to oppose drilling on public lands, offshore drilling, the Line 3 pipeline, the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines, and more. Real climate leadership to confront the climate crisis means opposing any and all new fossil fuel infrastructure.

    In March, Trump took unprecedented — and possibly illegal — action to force through TransCanada's proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline project. We’ve killed this pipeline before, and we’ll do it again because our climate and communities simply can’t afford it to ever be built.

    Add your name to call on all Democratic 2020 presidential candidates to take the "NoKXL Pledge" to take executive action on Day One to stop the Keystone XL pipeline.
