Canada Silences Scientists, Targets Environmentalists in Tar Sands Push

Canada Silences Scientists, Targets Environmentalists in Tar Sands Push | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

The project has sparked one of the nation’s most contentious environmental battles in decades. The Obama administration initially appeared ready to approve Keystone XL, but an unprecedented wave of activism from environmentalists and residents of the states along its path has forced several delays. Among those pressuring Obama for Keystone XL’s approval is the Canadian government, which recently offered a greater pledge of reduced carbon emissions if the pipeline is built.
