UPDATE: August 20th, the State Department issued a permit for the Alberta Clipper dirty oil sands pipeline. Although this is not good news, it is by no means the end of the fight -- either for the Alberta Clipper, or for dirty oil sands.
Tell Secretary Clinton we want a clean energy future, not the dirtiest oil on earth
Right now, while the United States is working to move into a clean energy economy, a stealth dirty oil mega project is sneaking across the border.
The mega project is called the Canadian oil sands, a.k.a. Alberta tar sands, and it's quietly making its way into the U.S., pipeline by pipeline, refinery by refinery, permit by permit.
Now only one person has the power to stop the dirtiest oil project on earth: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
A major piece of this single, massive, Big Oil project -- the Alberta Clipper pipeline -- is up for approval by the U.S. State Department. As if greenhouse gas pollution were not bad enough, it will also result in the wholesale destruction of Canadian boreal forest, a vital carbon sink and global bird nesting grounds.
Secretary Clinton has the power to protect the national interest from more dirty tar sands oil pumped in on pipelines from Canada. She can help secure a clean energy future that will create jobs and reduce the effects of climate change.
