Ian Somerhalder talks Keystone Pipeline from ‘Vampire Diaries’ set (Video)

‘Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder has always stood behind what he believes in, and what’s great about him is that he is not the type of guy that will stand on his soap box and preach at you. He is much more subtle when it comes to getting a message across and that’s why fans really listen to what he has to say.

Many people have been outside of the White House demonstrating their opposition to the Keystone Pipeline being built.  Even actress Daryl Hannah was arrested just last week for participating in the sit in and refusing to move until officials clued into the problem with the pipeline.

Somerhalder has posted a video on YouTube from his dressing room on the set of the ‘Vampire Diaries’ to trying to get people to sign the ISF petition to stop the pipeline from being built.  He even tweeted a photograph of his own name signed to the petition so that people really understood that he wasn’t asking people to do something that he wouldn’t do himself.

The petition already has 13,729 signatures and Ian is urging everyone to get on their computers and sign the petition.

Check out Ian’s video below and if you are interested in signing the petition that Ian is talking about you can go HERE to do so.
