SAN FRANCISCO —
Environmentalists are protesting in San Francisco as they urge President Barack Obama to take action on climate change and reject a pipeline that would carry oil from Canada to Texas.
Organizers say the members of 65 San Francisco Bay area groups including the Sierra Club, Greenpeace and 350.org are taking part in the rally, which coincides with a demonstration in Washington, D.C.
Demonstrators are holding the protest outside of a U.S. Department of State office, where they demanding the State Department reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
The pipeline -- if approved -- would carry oil derived from tars sands in Canada to refineries in Texas.
San Francisco police don't provide crowd estimates of rallies and protests, but a spokesman says police had no reports of any problems caused by the protest.
