Without you, we never could fight against again shale gas. You are our hero. #fraénce
Well done! I will forward this to my networks. Many of the people I’ve talked to about this knew nothing about the pipeline. I have written letters to friends, to the local paper — but this is the age of video. Fox’s film will be an excellent educational and promotional tool.
PLEASE GO TO YOU TUBE JOHN BOLENBAUGH AND WATCH THE SAND TAR MICHIGAN OIL VIDEOS. MOST RECENT ONES FIRST
A year ago most of us had never heard the word “frack” but thanks to Josh Fox, we now know what gas fracking is doing to our water tables, soil, rivers and streams and the horrid legacy its unknown toxins will leave behind in our earth and air. Most people haven’t heard much about tar sands either but this short video’s jaw-dropping images of just what the tar sands project already means for planet earth is going to help raise needed awareness too. Hopefully it will drive a bunch more people to the front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue over the next 15 days as people from across the country show up to count themselves present in this historic exercise in civil disobedience. This is a watershed moment in the environmental movement. It feels like the tipping point is in play. Thanks, Josh.
showed the video to my pals last night, literally watched their jaws drop. then they screamed about how this is NOT in the mainstream news. and Then, they all said this was a defining moment for our President. Mrs. Obama can plant all the vegetable gardens she wants, but if he signs this, it’s all a lie.
Awesome video! Josh Fox, you are truly a hero to the planet. I really can’t afford to go to DC but will try to be there on Sept.1.
Thanks Josh. Here’s the PR version of the Alberta tar sands oil (affectionately known as “Alberta Blue”) shot a while ago. Scary.
I included this video link in a short essay I wrote about why I’m participating in the tar sands pipeline protest on my website: http://thehudsonvalleygreen.com/
August 25 protester
Wow. A chilling indictment of all that’s short-sighted and destructive in our lust for oil.
PLEASE WATCH MY SAND TAR OIL VIDEOS OF THE MICHIGAN SPILL THAT KILLED EVERY FISH FOR 40 MILES AND ALMOST ALL OF THE RIVER ANIMALS. I HAVE HAD DEATH THREATS, SLASHED TIRES, BREAKS CUT, I WAS HIT OVER THE HEAD AND WAS FALSELY THREATENED WITH ARREST 5 TIMES. PLEASE PASS THESE VIDEOS AROUND. THEY CAN HELP PROVE THE DEVASTATION OF THIS SAND TAR OIL.

This disaster in the making has been public knowledge for over 20 years – and is the reason why the #1 exporter of oil to the US has been Canada for most of that period.
If this is a shock to you, you’ve been burying your head in the sand for a long time.
I wish i could go to DC anything we can do in Los Angeles?
A saturday demonstrtion at the Federal Building or Pershing Sq would be nice.
Great film. Very enlightening. The world must see it. I’m with you Josh. O’Bama–do not allow the Keystone XL pipeline to run through the US. Don’t let greedy oil barons ruin our country like they did at Keystone. All pipelines leak. We don’t need anymore disasters.
This film shows the actual damage being done. Once the wells are dug in and the gas companies plant the grass all around, the damage being done is no longer visible. There are so many lies and deceptions be given to us, it leaves us no choice but to investigate and stand up for our rights to have have clean air, clean water and clean food. Large corporations have gotten their way for far too long. President Obama- please stand up with us and do not give in to the few who make all the money . Keep our lands, our waters, our air, and our foods clean and healthy for all.
oMG!! I had no Idea… NOOOOOOOOOOOO Obama, let us be green!!
Support from Belgium!
Thanks Jaytee: Worth repeating; Mrs. Obama can plant all the vegetable gardens she wants, but if Barack signs this, it’s all a lie.
I am Canadian and I am disgusted. If I live long enough to have my grandchildren as why did I let this happen. Will they understand that there was little I could have done? That corrupt greedy people didn’t care. That they were very stupid people with a lot of education in money rather than in people. That they knew exactly what they were doing and didn’t care. That people were afraid to do without. That our throw away society had become passive and brain washed. That they didn’t know how to live without certain things even though my grandparents and their parents before them found ways to live without the “LUXURIES” of our time. Canada and United States are ready for civil disobedience and from what I understand can cross borders without gov’t requests. We need to stop this. Look what nuclear reactors are doing. So many young people are dying of cancer. It is not hard to figure out why. The earth has NEVER been at peace. All too soon there will be nothing left to fight over. I hope they all rot to death.
The coming “UNION” between Canada, the United States and Mexico. HMM. That’s one big corrupt super power. Harper is hungry for it. It is the best time for this Tyrant. Power hungry greedy intolerant selfish person. He is so afraid of what the people think that he has stated himself that he does not watch Canadian news. He shouldn’t be afraid, no one would dare say anything against him and the conservative party. Do I understand correctly that negative comments on the Youtube video link provided by M. Frances were deleted. If so what happened to freedom of speach? I could not work with any facet of Alberta tar sands. Our beautiful Boreal forest , do they not realize the necessity and purpose of such pristine areas on this planet? The here and now is an easy life. But their/our children and grandchildren……..down the line will not have an easy life. If they will be able to produce children of their own at all, it will be a short painfull miserable life. Plagued with respritory diseases and incurable cancers and poisoned food and water. I hope Harper and his flunkies and corporate North American all rot to death. If the R.C.M.P. show up at my door, I won’t be surprised. Scared S—–ss mind you, but not surprised.
Tell Obama that he wont have Congress to blame for this disaster.
I put the White House phone # in my cell and I call it frequently when I’m in line or have a minute— President Comment line: 202-456-1111
Arkansas–once deemed “the Natural State”–has been robbed and abandoned by the likes of Bill & Hillary and every successor to the throne. As they encroach on the Buffalo River, we demand this destruction STOP! It’s coming to a people’s WAR against the ultra-wealthy, and we set our sites on ‘getting even,’ should this destruction get any worse!
OMG! Why haven’t all of my friends been sending out links to this video???
Listening to Josh, (even when completely redundant,) always makes me want to cry!!
