As you should know, the Canadian government and several oil companies propose to build an oil pipeline from Alberta's oil sands to the US market, even though extracting oil from oil sands creates three times as much carbon dioxide as does procuring it from conventional wells.  This at a time when we should be trying to reduce carbon emissions in order to retard climate change.  Please, support alternative energy sources and development instead of the use of tar sand oil, now.

      I hope that the life for all our grandchildren will be healthy and secure. Oil sands are dirty and have a huge carbon footprint. Why is the world does the US care about this- approx 3000 new jobs! Big deal. NO try the elite Koch brothers and their ilk.

      The oil sands are killing us. The carcinogens produced are causing cancer and killing the world.

      The only solution that is acceptable to me is to leave that tar sand right where it is now, in/on the ground. We need to move away from carbon based fuel now, not sometime in the future. The time is now.

      The Keystone/Tar Sands issues are not bargaining chips – they are death sentences for the planet and its inhabitants. Read Articles: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art18212.asp; http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art15990.asp;

      Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem, for all of our sakes.
