    • Dear President Biden
      Thank you for stopping the Keystone XL pipeline. Now we need to stop Line 3. It is not compatible with the treaties that the U.S. has with the sovereign indigenous nations, and it is not compatible with our goal to pass on a livable world to the next generation. If you are serious about addressing climate change, we cannot burn any more fossil fuels and must stop the oil and gas pipelines.
