We have already seen how tar sands oil spills can have a devastating impact on local water supplies. Send a message to Secretary Clinton, urging her to include climate impacts in the review of TransCanada's new proposal.

Cal, oil spills are bad even when oil is not from tar sands. Why do you want to help Saudi lobby to protect US market from our oil and have Americans to lose about 30,000 jobs?

Bob, you're terribly misinformed on the jobs issue, 30,000 is a severly inflated number. Try some research. Oh, and in case you don't know, most of the tar sands oil will go overseas to China.

The bitumenous sand gives oil that will be sold on the world market. Let's insulate our houses and reduce single driver miles.

Why is it that these energy companies tout the jobs that will be created when they are all in Communist China!

Kathy, the number of jobs the pipeline would created would be big, and the question of how much tar oil would go to China is not that important.

The point it, that oil spills happened before and are not limited to the tar sands only. And another point is, that nobody can describe Saudi oil as "more ethical" than Canadian oil.

The tar sands pipeline would create only about 300 permanent U.S. jobs. Tar sands oil and its production method are both more polluting than conventionally drilled oil, putting more greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. And then there's the problem of the destruction of vast areas of Canada's boreal forest, the summer home and breeding grounds of many American birds, among many other animal species. We should be moving away much faster from ALL dirty energy: oil and gas, coal and nuclear, and toward clean energy. Signed and noted, thanks, Cal.

we do not need to sacrifice American health for a Canadian company to speed climate change and ship the worst fuel in the world to China

There is still much debate in Canada about tar sands oil. Kinder Morgan wants to twin its current pipeline to Metro Vancouver and of course Enbridge wants to push through their pipeline. Even the BC premier is coming out with reservations.
