The Tar Sands Disaster @barackobama must do what’s best for America no #keystone #tarsands #idlenomore

The Tar Sands Disaster @barackobama must do what’s best for America no #keystone #tarsands #idlenomore | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

President Obama will be doing Canada a favor if he blocks the Keystone XL pipeline once and for all.

 

The most obvious reason is that tar sands production is one of the world’s most environmentally damaging activities. It wrecks vast areas of boreal forest through surface mining and subsurface production. It sucks up huge quantities of water from local rivers, turns it into toxic waste and dumps the contaminated water into tailing ponds that now cover nearly 70 square miles.

 

Also, bitumen is junk energy. A joule, or unit of energy, invested in extracting and processing bitumen returns only four to six joules in the form of crude oil. In contrast, conventional oil production in North America returns about 15 joules. Because almost all of the input energy in tar sands production comes from fossil fuels, the process generates significantly more carbon dioxide than conventional oil production.

 
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:
The Tar Sands Disaster ... "Mr. Obama must do what’s best for America. But stopping Keystone XL would be a major step toward stopping large-scale environmental destruction, the distortion of Canada’s economy and the erosion of its democracy."

Shouting match follows protest-shortened C-27 press conference - #IdleNoMore

RAW VIDEO: Idle No More organizer Pam Palmater and Canadian Tax Payers Federation prairie region director Colin Craig have a heated discussion during a scrum following the announcement from Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt that Bill C-27, the First Nations Financial Transparency Act, has received royal assent.

The press conference was interrupted shortly after Valcourt finished speaking. A protestor repeatedly banged a drum and shorted from the back of the room. Security escorted the Minister from the room and other speakers, including Craig and Phyllis Sutherland from Peguis First Nation were not able to comment....Canadian Taxpayers Federation prairie regional director Colin Craig interrupts and shouts at an Idle No More organizer - tells her she is "disgraceful" for fighting bill C-27. 

Meanwhile, apparently the Canadian Taxpayers Federation has no interest in the billions and billions of dollars we spend funding a corrupt, unaccountable, nontransparent and undemocratic government - the Harper Government.

Fasting and Idle No More A Spark Lit the Fire - Native News Network

Fasting and Idle No More A Spark Lit the Fire - Native News Network | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

As Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence embarked on her 44 day fast, which was really a spiritual journey, she demonstrated her courage to do this for her people and it awakened the spirit of nations. Many immediately began their own actions in support. An online event began on December 12 in support of Chief Theresa Spence. The goal was simple and it spiritual.

 

Non-natives have joined in the fight because much of the changes already in place and the many more to come will impact the entire Turtle Island and that is a cause for great concern. Our waterways are at a high risk for pollution now and with very little protection many communities will sink deeper into poverty. The ecosystem cannot survive if it not protected, life on our Mother Earth will become extinct.

 

So I applaud everyone who has decided to stand up and speak out. We cannot allow things to continue the way they have been, our future generations need us to remind our governments how important it is to protect environment, lives and the rights of the First Nations. The fire has been lit and it is up to us to keep it burning for the sake of all my relations.
