Get the world free of fossil fuel dependence

I live in a bush village in Southeast Alaska where I can breathe clean air and drink water from the creek next to my home. I have lived this subsistence lifestyle for 35 years but fear that climate change will affect our village and the rest of the world. Supporting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline is supporting one of the dirtiest, most carbon-intensive fossil fuels on earth and an accelerator of global warming. President Obama made the right choice when he did not allow it before and he needs to take executive action to keep the pipeline from traversing American soil. If he takes action immediately, it will be a step in the right direction to slowing down the destructive results of climate change. Our focus needs to be getting off fossil fuels and encouraging alternative energy through tax incentives and research and development funding.
