I just signed a petition to tell Hillary Clintonto stand with American communities and not the Koch brothersand dirty oil profiteers. Forward this note to your friends so they can see the video, sign the petition and spread the word: http://KochBrothersExposed.com/tellclintonno. This is a great opportunity to kick the Kochswhere it counts - their wallet.
This is affecting us here in OK. Several OK farmers have lost their land to eminent domain so that this pipeline can run through OK, along with 5 other states, down to the gulf of Mexico through Texas. And they have already had several breaks and oil leaks in the area that has already been built, up North somewhere.
This is the Keystone XL Pipeline Extension. TransCanada is the company, a Canadian company this is taking land in America (and in Oklahoma) via eminent domain. Paul Elliott, Clinton's former deputy campaign manager, is now a lobbyist for TransCanada and he is lobbying the State Department for the pipeline permit. Ms. Clinton is on record saying that this is almost a done deal and she seemed very vague about trying to stop it. Friends of the Earth, along with other groups, have filed a lawsuit against the State Dept. to try to raise awareness of this. Let's help to stop it in its tracks and to help our OK landowners who are losing control of their land for the benefit of TransCanada and the Koch Brothers, among other investors.
Congressmen Henry Waxman and Bobby Rush have requested paperwork from the Koch Industries.
Secretary Clinton is the only one who can stop this pipeline from continuing. PLEASE, SIGN THIS PETITION and encourage her to stop this project.
Then watch this video about ANOTHER way that we can power America.
This video shows a company in America, Solar Roadways, that has come up with a way to use LED lites, garbage from landfills, etc. to build roads that capture sunlight and heat generated from cars going over roadways to power electric cars and electricity for our homes and businesses. This is such a great way to provide power for America. It will take $$$$, but it will provide manay, many jobs; it will generate electricty that can provide almost all the energy that we need in America; it will use up garbage currently rotting in our landfills all over America and we can stop using fossil fuel for our energy needs and it will END OUR DEPENDENCY on foreign source of energy.
This information about Solar Roadways was listed on the webpage above. Their movie, YERT: The Movie, will be shown at the deadCenter Film Festival June 9 & 11 in downtown OKC. It talks about innovative ideas that will help make America better. Check it out. Info on the webpage. YERT stands for Your Environmental Road Trip. I plan on attending the June 9 showing. I hope you can come to one of the shows to learn more about what we can do in America to bring innovative ideas to fruition.
Thanks for reading to the end.
PEACE is Possible!!!
