Sharon Wenner, Mayor, Atkinson, Nebraska; Lou Ann Tooker, Economic Development

We demand that you protect property rights, our town and our environment by blocking the Keystone Pipeline through Atkinson, Nebraska.  Our beautiful town could potentially be a toxic dump if a pipeline accident happens in the future.  Your opposition will put pressure our state and federal government to stand against the short-sighted contraction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and our reliance on fossil fuels.  

Signed,

NASA's leading climate scientist, Dr. James Hansen has called the Keystone XL pipeline"a fuse to the largest carbon bomb on the planet." Hansen has said that if all the carbon stored in the Canadian tar sands is released into the earth's atmosphere it would mean "game over" for the planet.

Opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline has united families throughout the path of the proposed project.  Both climate activists and property rights advocates are also joining to win the battle of public opinion. Help fight the pipeline and support families in Atkinson by signing the petition today.
