Tar Sands: Have Your Mind Blown

"Damage will be irreversible."

"Uses more water than a city of 2 million people."

"36,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide per day" (1.3 million cars)

"A literal hell on Earth."

If you're not familiar with Tar Sands oil - or even if you are - watch this video to get a quick understanding of the many interrelated, devastating impacts of accessing this oil - before it ever even gets burned.

Nearly 300 have been arrested so far in DC protesting the proposed XL Pipeline that would require a huge investment to pipe this nasty stuff from Canada through the US to the Gulf of Mexico.  Obama can stop it - please sign this petition to encourage him to do so.

Stay going.
