Environmentalists backed President Barack Obama passionately in the 2008 election. But they may not feel the same inspiration this time around, Politico reports.

Activists gathered near the White House Monday to protest a proposed Canada-to-Texas tar sands oil pipeline that they say could cause climate damage.

“We’re reminding him and ourselves what happened in 2008,” said one of the protesters, Mike Tidwell, director of Chesapeake Climate Action Network. “We believed in change, we believed in hope, and we still do. But this is a test. The tar sands pipeline is a test.”

The State Department will decide on the pipeline’s fate. Obama said in April that he didn’t have enough information to have an opinion about the issue yet.
