One of our great writers, Don Lieber, has created a petition on MoveOn.org targeted at Obama that I thought was worth quickly passing along. It’s a Father’s Day petition pushing Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
Here’s the petition statement:
Dear President Obama,
Father’s Day represents a celebration of our cherished obligation to protect our children, and to help prepare them for happy, healthy and fulfilling lives into the future.
We, the undersigned fathers of children across America, believe that increasing our nation’s dependence on fossil-fuel tar sands oil, from any source, runs completely counter to this most sacred of obligations.
We urge you to take the meaning of Father’s Day to heart – both as our President and as a beloved father yourself – and REJECT THE KEYSTONE “TAR SANDS” PIPELINE.
For a little more background information and to sign the petition, head on over to MoveOn.org.
