Watch: New Video on Stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline

Posted: 10/27/11 01:52 PM ET

Have you seen NRDC Action Fund Chairman's Bob Epstein's latest video on stopping the Keystone XL pipeline yet? We especially love the musical backdrop sung by American folk musician Laurie Lewis.

The lyrics, while catchy, really get to the heart of issue and spell out exactly why there's just no good reason for Keystone to build the pipeline beyond their own profitable motives.

"Valero Oil of Texas is not the oil for me, you want to pump the tar sands to your refinery but pumping gunk from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico is a pipeline to disaster and to keystone we say no.

A pipeline to disaster and to keystone we say no!

Valero Oil of Texas you lobby for the pipe, you talk about employment but we know that's just hype. We'd rather create good jobs and a strong economy stop subsidizing oil and fund cleaner energy."

Don't forget to join us on November 6th in Washington when thousands of concerned citizens and activists like NRDC Founding Director John Adams led by Bill McKibben gather around the White House to urge President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
