Tar Sands Action

Have you been paying attention to the Tar Sands Action in Washington D.C.?  You can learn more about it at this link.

Those who care about the environment and the future of the planet have been converging in Washington, D.C. to call on the President to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline (which would go from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, all the way to the Gulf of Mexico).  The largest environmental and eco organizations in the USA are in agreement that the pipeline must be stopped.  You can sign a petition to President Obama at this link, asking him to block  the pipeline.  Read about how the Tar Sands Action was inspired by a UU's civil disobedience at this link.
