Julia Louis-Dreyfus Says Keystone XL Is “Mega-Stupid” [Video]

On November 6th, thousands of people will gather to remind President Obama of his promise to reduce our country’s dependence on foreign oil and expand our access to renewable energy.áSo far, Obama has been far less successful in fulfilling those promises than many would have liked. But when it comes to the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, he has a chance to redeem himself.

While Congress may do everything it can to protect Big Oil subsidies and limit government investment in clean energy companies, the decision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline rests in the President’s hands alone.

Participants in the November 6th Tar Sands Action will join hands in a giant circle around the White House, signifying the overwhelming majority of Americans who oppose the pipeline. A majority that includes celebrities like Robert Redford and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Who would you believe? The people making nothing on this project or the people making millions on it. Total compensation for Julia Louis-Dreyfus....0. Total compensation for Robert Redford....0. Total compensation for Russ Girling, CEO of TransCanada....$6,941,349.00.

If Julia lending her voice will help this cause then I'm all for it. This pipeline is bad news all the way around.

I've never watched her show, so I don't know if her character is an airhead, but if it is, she's just playing herself.

so what...? I think it shouldn't be built, and it shouldn't take "famous" people to stop it from happening.

Patrick is right - if you keep talking like your are an airhead, people will think you are an airhead.

I wish ExxonMobil could be bribed with a big fat juicy federal contract to go develop bio-diesel from algae selling it to the federal government to restock the strategic reserve INSTEAD of building this pipeline. The world really needs a SUSTAINABLE substitute for petroleum and bio-diesel from algae seems like the most likely candidate. Second place would go to salt marsh plants. There are algae that will grow in seawater, including the marine phytoplankton.
