This might be the most important weekend for the future EVER! Up to 1,000 activists from the Valley are heading to Washington D.C. this Sunday to participate in the Forward On Climate Rally to send the message to Obama and John Kerry that we don’t want these climate destroying tar sands, that they should reject the toxic Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and consider their legacies… because we are.
Michael T. Klare, author of “The Race For What’s Left: The Global Scramble for the World’s Last Resources”, explains in “The Strategic Importance of Keystone XL” how if President Obama shoots down the Keystone XL pipeline, it might be GAME OVER for the tar-sands industry. It’s time to turn up the heat on this do nothing government! Act Up!! Head to DC this weekend and do your part.
