TillersonExxon Mobil Corporation5959 Las Colinas Blvd.Irving, Texas 75039Re: The evidence and sentiment are stacking up against Keystone XLDear President Obama and Mr. Tillerson,Yesterday, I shared my friend Jane’s testimony at the State Department’s Keystone XLhearing in Grand Island, Nebraska, in which her final admonishment was:
"No! Not in our land! Not in our water! Not in our country!" 
I have written to you before, Mr. Tillerson, about your being in the right place and the righttime to stop the war that is building on American soil -- the climate war, which targets oil andcoal and tarsands and fracked gas. The beating of the drum is incessant, loud, and intense.
 
The line is being drawn in the sand, so to speak. People of conscience are standing firm.Honestly, we are getting daily reminders of the damage that oil, coal, tarsands, fracked gasand the fall-out from their production, transportation and processing --
daily ecocide

The following New York Times graphic was posted on Facebook yesterday with the heading“Two Decades of Spills” (http://bit.ly/NYT09Sept11Spills) and the caption:
Since 1990, more than 110 million gallons of mostly crude and petroleum productshave spilled from the nation’s mainland pipeline network. More than half of it occurredin three states — Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana — where more pipelines exist.110 million gallons spread over two decades is minuscule relative to total production, butit is devastating to the health of the people, the animals, the wildlife, the water ways -- allthat come in contact with the toxic effects, directly or indirectly. It’s not just risk and cost.
