It is those we protest, those who profit from radically altering the chemical composition of our atmosphere -- and the prospects for survival of humanity - that are the radicals. And share this pledge with friends and family so that those who are ready and willing to be arrested can be counted in the pledge to resist.

If tens of thousands of people stand up as President Obama mulls his final decision, and commit to participate in civil disobedience if necessary, we can convince the White House that it will be politically unfeasible to go forward. Our goal is to stop the Keystone XL pipeline -- by showing enough opposition to Keystone XL that President Obama will reject it. So we want you to carefully consider if this is something you can commit to be a part of.
But if he shows clear signs he that he is preparing to approve it, we will be ready. Here's exactly what we have in mind: The State Department is now considering the more than one million comments on its sham assessment opposing Keystone XL - including a very critical comment from the EPA.
Our time is short to convince President Obama to change his mind.
We do not know how many people's pledges, and how many pledged actions, it will take to convince President Obama to resist the big money, dirty energy, inside-the-beltway pressure and take a stand to protect our nation from the greatest threat of all.
You can pledge to participate or you can pledge to help organize an action in your community. And soon, we'll announce organizer trainings so local leaders and activists who want to can get the tools they need to organize an action near them. And we ask with the faith that those who commit to participate and organize actions will participate only in the most dignified manner.
After all, we are the conservatives, standing up for a safe and secure future for our families.
That while NASA's chief climate scientist's assertion that Keystone XL will spell 'game over' for the climate may be true, it is essentially irrelevant.
That we should let the bankers and the oil companies profit while the planet inevitably burns. And so, that day reminded us of something else, too: Those two weeks in August of 2011, when the peaceful and dignified arrest of 1,253 people over two weeks at President Obama's front door effectively stopped what was considered a virtually guaranteed presidential approval of Keystone XL.
Read the original call to action below, and sign the pledge to let the President know you’re standing with us, and against Keystone XL.
Original call to action: March 6, 2013: The State Department's release of its Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement in March was one of those days that remind us of just how steep a hill to climb this fight against climate change is.
