Tar Sands Update
Demonstration planned for Nov. 6 in Washinton.
Make History on November 6
We're about to ask you to do something extraordinary. Something world changing. Something righteous. Something to use up those frequent-flier miles.
On November 6, meet us in Washington, D.C., to join hands in a ring around the White House. Together, thousands of us will send President Obama a message he might overlook on his Blackberry: We want clean energy. Tar sands oil is not in our national interest. And the Keystone XL pipeline must neverget a presidential permit.
The closer you look at the Keystone XL boondoggle and its wealthy corporate backers, the worse the whole thing smells. In Texas, the Sierra Club and the Tea Party actually allied to oppose it.
Seriously, it's now or never: Either we stop this pipeline and the environmental catastrophes that come with it, or we live with the consequences. Don't miss your chance to make history. Come help us stop the Keystone XL (and bring a sweater -- D.C. can be nippy in November).
What if it were my home
It can be hard to imagine the size of the tar sands. Click on the link below to see how big the Tar sands really is, compared to where you live now.
A picture is worth a million words...
Check out some pictures here of the tarsands - not the kind you see on those “greenwashed” ads by the tar sands industry - but of real environmental destruction.
