How to stop a monster..

Look how beautiful this is...
Or how about this?

I cannot let another day go by without mentioning the environmental disaster which has struck the coast of the southern United States.
I won't show you any grim reminders of the Exxon Valdez disaster because we've all seen it too many times.
The Enbridge Company in Canada wants to build a pipeline from the tar sands in Alberta (another environmental massacre of the land) to the west coast of B.C.
The government wants to allow oil tankers to ply our coast carrying millions of barrels down this pristine landscape.
The people are saying NO.
One wrong move and......well you know the rest of the story.
Don't let this happen. This is our world regardless of borders.
Life depends on it.
Not just humans...especially everything other than humans.
They have no voice. No choice.

 Stop the madness.
