Contaminación por el shale oil de Canadá

Obama: We can't afford another Mayflower

This week we watched in horror as a small Arkansas suburb was flooded with toxic chemicals from Canada’s tar sands. Families were evacuated as thick black gunk gushed out of the ground, contaminating an entire neighborhood in the small town of Mayflower. The home video got almost 3 million views on YouTube.1
It wasn’t hard to see that an environmental disaster like this could easily happen to you or me, right in our own backyard. President Barack Obama said from the campaign trail back in 2008, “Let’s be the generation that finally frees itself from the tyranny of oil.” It's time for the president to walk his talk.
Demand that President Obama get filthy tar sands out of the United States!
The Arkansas tar sands gusher came just two days after Canadian Pacific Rail shed 15,000 gallons of filthy tar sands into the Minnesota countryside. When you add this to the massive tar sands pipeline disaster in Michigan’s Kalamazoo River in 2010 and another tar sands pipeline failure in Yellowstone in 2011, it is clear that the transport of tar sands is extremely hazardous to the health of Americans, to the purity of our drinking water, and to the survival of our wildlife.
In the president’s own words, "As we stand on the crossroads of history, we can make the right choices and meet the challenges that face us.”
Tell President Obama to live up to his word and make the right choice: no dirty tar sands in the United States!
Thank you for taking action today, sharing it with your friends and loved ones, and for standing up with ForestEthics for a better energy future.
