A $1 million, four-part TV ad series designed to educate the public about the Keystone XL pipeline started airing on Sept. 8, and can be seen on YouTube as well.

The first 90-second segment is entitled "Who Profits From Keystone XL?"

NextGen Climate Action founder Tom Steyer, an investor and advanced energy advocate, says, "Here's the truth: Keystone oil will travel through America, not to America."

The press release states:

The ad cites Congressional testimony by an executive from Keystone XL Pipeline owner TransCanada -- in which the company refused to commit to keep Keystone's oil in America -- to show it is an export pipeline that will not boost American energy independence.

"We believe the President wants to do the right thing for America by rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline. These ads are part of our effort to help him do that," said Steyer. "Every day that passes, the Pipeline's chances for approval get slimmer. The President has said he won't approve the Pipeline if it significantly increases carbon pollution -- and we now know it's designed to speed the development of the world's dirtiest oil source. With one of TransCanada's contractors under investigation for deceiving taxpayers about its conflict of interest, the knowledge that Keystone won't benefit the American economy, and the fact that this is the dirtiest oil source in the world, it is time for us to stand up and say NO to Keystone"
...Nearly 200,000 Americans have signed the associated petition to President Obama urging him to reject Keystone.
