New Video underscores the Keystone XL Tar Sands Climate Threat
This article by Danielle Droitsch is re-posted from EcoWatch. Editor’s Note: The analysis in the following video on the climate impact of the tar sands pipeline is important and critical. However, we do not think that the action these groups are proposing, standing in front of the White House with signs, will be enough to actually stop the pipeline from being completed.
A new video released by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and 350.org explains how the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline is a lynchpin enabling the climate intensive tar sands industry to grow unimpeded. The video discusses cutting edge research from Oil Change International showing how tar sands oil causes more carbon pollution than originally estimated.
Recently, four energy experts and climate scientists from Canada and the U.S. traveled to Washington DC with an urgent message: if we are to truly respond to climate change which is causing extreme life-threatening weather, we must reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Watch the video and join tens of thousands of others on Feb. 17 for the Forward on Climate rally in Washington DC. Join us and send a message to the Obama administration that we need a comprehensive response to the threat of climate change. And one key ingredient of this plan will be for the U.S. to say No to the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
