Longtime anti-fracking activist Mark Ruffalo is lending his voice to a related issue. Stopping the Keystone XL pipeline that would carry oil from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada all the way down to the refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.

Ruffalo is asking the public to join him during the last two weeks of August in Washington D.C. to show President Obama that he has the support he needs to stand up to these huge corporations.

The actor says in the video, “I’ve seen the kind of damage that out-of-control energy development can do to water and to communities near my own home, where fracking for natural gas is causing widespread pollution…All these problems are connected. We need to get off fossil fuels.”

In the video Ruffalo shows the kinds of pristine habitats this pipeline would run through, as well as communities. And as he points out, spills along the way are inevitable.
