Outrageous: Keystone XL conflict of interest

It’s simple — and outrageous.

This story just broke. And you can take action now to help make sure it doesn’t go away.

“Susan Rice, the candidate believed to be favored by President Obama to become the next Secretary of State, holds significant investments in more than a dozen Canadian oil companies and banks that would stand to benefit from expansion of the North American tar sands industry and construction of the proposed $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline,” OnEarth Magazine reports. “If confirmed by the Senate, one of Rice’s first duties likely would be consideration, and potentially approval, of the controversial mega-project.”

Did they think we wouldn’t find out?

It’s indefensible that Rice has millions of dollars invested in oil companies and banks that will make huge profits if the State Department gives approval to the XL pipeline.

As a high-ranking administration official — and a potential replacement for Hillary Clinton early next year to run the State Department — Susan Rice shouldn’t have any stake in corporations that are doing all they can to plunder tar sands in Canada and send carbon emissions soaring even faster.

To demand that Rice immediately sell every dollar of stock in every one of those companies, click here.

The founder of 350.org, Bill McKibben, just told OnEarth Magazine: “It’s really amazing that they’re considering someone for Secretary of State who has millions invested in these companies. The State Department has been rife with collusion with the Canadian pipeline builders, and it’s really distressing to have any sense that that might continue to go on.”

We agree. It’s amazing. And intolerable.

    Before you go off NC, I sent this in because of the information it contains not because it’s a petition. Frankly, I think every politician in DC has a finger in this pie.

      Angel -NYC every politician is corrupted. I honestly believe that even if they enter politics with the sole desire to be a force for good they probably get a little insider tip and of course the banks to lend on a sure thing. Once they enrich themselves once or twice or three or four times they then get a little tip to vote for such and such corporate interest or perhaps their insider trade will be exposed in the media. The scum are beneath contempt, they arrive poor and leave filthy rich.
