DENVER NEW YEARS EVE

Description

Come join us as various activist groups (from around the Denver/Boulder area) and community members come and stand together in solidarity to raise awareness of Suncor Tar Sands Refinery's recent oil leak in the Sand Creek and South Platte River at Commerce City.

BACKGROUND:
It was reported in late November that oil has been discovered in the South Platte River. Very little coverage from the media was published at the time of the discovery, but, until recently, it has been confirmed that gas-like sludge has been found on the edges of the river. It is unknown how long this leak has been present in the water. This water is a major source for drinking water, wild-habitat and agricultural uses for the Midwest, but the water is now contaminated and is non-usable for everyone and everything.

**Suncor Energy is the oldest tar sands producers, up to 90% of its production comprised of tar sands bitumen. The company uses its Colorado refinery to process some of the heavy tar sands co…

tar sands protest,washington dc

post she wrote about visiting her native Alberta, where she saw the tar sands up close. She explains a bit about why this kind of individual outreach is so important:

"A week after I visited the Canadian Tar Sands “to see for myself” what that area is all about, I received emails from several of my friends and colleagues, encouraging me to join them in Washington, DC for a "peaceful protest" against the proposed pipeline that would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to Texas…

I am signed up for a Tar Sands protest at the White House in Washington, DC that has the potential to get the protesters arrested. Do I feel this cause is important enough to take these risks? YES I do. I hope my kids will be proud of me, and that it builds on my legacy and actions to try to raise awareness to the growing reality of climate change that is threatening my children’s future and mine. I want to WAKE UP my neighbors, friends, colleagues and total strangers by showing them that a mom…

EGYPT 2011 AND BEYOND ?

. . .photo is from cairo egypt showing removal of portrait former leader of egypt on 13th Feb,2011.
after the popular uprising in Egypt and removal of Mubarek..its time for analysis what happened and why...egypt has a rich history and is strategically located close to the oil supply routes via the suez canal,which is a curse and a blessing to its peoples.the Suez is a curse because many world economies depend on shipments through this canal. Crude oil tankers are vital to their shortsighted economic interests which is in direct opposition to the interests of a healthy planet.Most of the oil through the canal will end up in the millions of shiny dysfunctional suv's whose days are numbered...none of this canal shipping traffic benefits the general population of egypt in my opinion but instead caters to the mindless consumer interests of a destructive lifestyle of a failed economic system that ignores the ecology that puts the whole world at great risk.
