350.org oil sands petition


in Canada, Economics, Law, Politics, The environment

As usual, Bill McKibben is saying sensible things and calling for appropriate actions. He is a non-Canadian who is concerned about the ethics of digging up and burning the oil sands, in a world where the climate is changing at a frightening pace.

He is asking Canadians to sign a petition:

“As a Canadian, I stand with people all over the world who are opposed to burning the oil sands, and demand that our leaders stop their campaign to discredit the movement to stop the pipeline.”

Please consider signing. He is hoping to get 10,000 signatures before he visits Vancouver in March.

Where and when will Bill McKibbon in Vancouver be speaking in March?

It’s probably not fully planned yet. Timelines on these things keep shifting, and new developments are taking place all the time.

Stop the pipeline!

Stopping the XL pipeline (for the next 4 years anyway) would be very good news for those of us invested in railroad stock. CP and CN Rail (CANADIAN rail companies) are buying a total of some 100,000 oil tank cars to ship oil by rail down to the gulf coast and over to western Canada until the pipelines are finished. Adding another four years of delay will surely help their bottom lines and our stock. Yesss! (Ain’t capitalism great.)
