Will you join us in pledging resistance to the Keystone XL pipeline, including - if necessary - pledging to participate in peaceful, dignified civil disobedience?

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.

The Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe said on Thursday that the legally enshrined protection of animals is a "legitimate aim." In this particular case, the protection of the welfare of animals from "unnatural sexual attacks" outweighed the plaintiffs' right to sexual self-determination, the court said.

Judges in the southwestern German city said the two people who brought the lawsuit - who claimed they "feel sexually attracted to animals" - had to "accept state measures that are in the overwhelming majority's interest." "The complaint is unfounded," the constitutional court ruled.

After all, we are the conservatives, standing up for a safe and secure future for our families.

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.

the State Department found the project is "unlikely to have a significant impact" on tar sands development. This assessment was a vehicle for the White House to test the waters and see if the public will stand by, and buy this false and cynical argument that the tar sands will just get burned anyway.

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.

So we want to see the beautiful sight of actions across the nation -- including a wide variety of symbolic targets like State Department offices, Trans Canada corporate lobbies, Obama Organizing for Action meetings, banks that are financing tar sands oil development, areas ravaged by Superstorm Sandy, and along the pipeline route. We need to support their efforts and make them much, much bigger. We ask in the belief that there are tens of thousands of people out there who feel as strongly about this as we do; who believe that these circumstances call for extraordinary action, and want to be part of that action in their community.

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.

But with the president ignoring every possible sign Mother Nature can send, it is once again incumbent upon us to send a message he can't ignore.
