With hundreds of thousands of gallons of #tarsands   #oil  spilled in #Arkansas , we discuss why a Keystone XL disaster would be even worse. Watch and click here to tell the White House to reject tar sands: http://sc.org/KXLcomments

Very good discussion. Thanks to all for posting this.

Is the Sierra Club working with the Canadian government to convince them not to mine the tar sands in the first place? My concern is that even if the Keystone pipeline is defeated, they will continue to mine and send all this toxic material to China and India in boats that, unfortunately, will probably spill and contaminate our oceans. It seems to me that we need to get at the root of the problem, which is that Canada is willing to mine and sell the tar sands oil--how can we do that?
