Under Siege by Tar Sands | Indigenous Environmental Network

The first time I saw a picture pertaining to tar sands extraction, was on Marty Cobenais' computer.
We were both attending an event in Houston, Texas, and found some time to talk shop. By this time I knew well of the struggle to stop the Keystone XL - the proposed 2,174 mile long pipeline that would carry toxic bitumen (tar sand oil) from Canada to the Gulf Coast. In fact, just a few months prior I had been one of the 1,252 people arrested in front of the White House in protest of the project which then NASA scientist James Hansen has called "the dirty needle" and "game over" for the planet (Marty had been arrested too, but on different day than I). Photo: Pipeline spill near Deer River, Minnesota (Photo credit: Marty Cobenais) Photo: Pipeline spill near Deer River, Minnesota (Photo credit: Marty Cobenais) I knew about the carbon bomb that the Keystone XL had the potential to be, and that coupled with the 12 to 17 percent higher greenhouse gas emissions from its extraction, this pipeline and the continuation of production would yield more of the devastating impacts of hurricanes on my beloved Gulf Coast. It was the global warming connection, which scientists have repeatedly confirmed contributes to deadly storms like Katrina and Rita, that launched my interest in fighting against the tar sands. The first photo Marty showed me that day was of a man holding what, at initial glance, looked appropriately like a large cow patty. As I pulled the screen closer, I became startled by the similarities between the glob of heavy sand and oil and one of BP's tar hunks that I have seen so frequently since the deep water drilling disaster. As Marty, who is Red Lake Ojibwe and a "champion pipeline fighter" with the Indigenous Environmental Network, began flipping through his collection of photos, he told me about the devastating and egregious health and economic impacts that tar sand operations in Canada have caused to our relatives up North.
