Here’s one more piece today on the climate action going on in DC to try to stop the tar sands pipeline. Specifically, to try to get Obama to deny the permits for it. Was also shared in our Top Activism Stories of the day post — take a look at that for more.
The Tar Sands pipeline, if built, as leading NASA climate scientist James Hansen has said, would be an “end game” for climate change. We would be totally, totally screwed. That is why hundreds of people are getting arrested in DC over a two week period of time (starting last Saturday) and why this is a make-or-break decision for Obama with environmentalists.
