Green Groups: Where Does OFA Stand on Keystone XL?

May 20, 2013
(Politico)

Climate activists already pessimistic about the Obama administration's upcoming decision on the Keystone XL pipeline are seizing on another reason for worry: The president’s grass-roots political organization is refusing their pleas to take a stance against the project.

Organizing for Action has been winning cheers from environmentalists for calling out climate change skeptics in Congress. But they say activists who support OFA also want the group to press President Barack Obama to oppose the pipeline, which they call a major threat to the Earth's climate.
