Oppose the Northern Gateway XL Pipeline Tar Sands Project

category international | environment | opinion/analysis author Wednesday December 12, 2012 21:58author by Unity Jack Report this post to the editors

This pipeline from the Alberta Tar Sands would be shipping millions of tons of unprocessed Bitumen, of the dirtiest sort, and it will cause pollution eventually along the pristine Canadian West Coast. This enbridge pipeline deal is owned by the Oil Monopolies of Canada, United States, and China. It is a threat to the very oxygen that is in the atmosphere which is already gone by 38% to carbon-dioxide. You can see that no coal, gas, oil or atomic energy is safe and in fact the globe is in the fail-safe mode now because more carbon-dioxide is cascading into the atmosphere than oxygen which cannot be replaced fast enough to plus the air for the air breathing oxygen needed to live on. You cannot live on the carbon-dioxide replacement.

Look Liberal Trudeau's dad, the ex-prime minister of canada Pierre Trudeau, was the main man backing and pushing the Canadian Oil Monopolies to takeover the Alberta Tar Sands. This was done at the expense of the First Nations Sovereignty and Treaty Rights, thusly causing pollution of the Native Religion of the ' Great Outdoors '.

Everything was done for the legalization of this project tar-sand from Ottawa, for the exploitation of the air, land, and water for oil money. Dirty money for sure destruction of the environment.

All the while the Organic Worker's Commune was inventing, and using the tools to put in place the non-pollution solution such as wind, tidal, and solar power that transforms to electricity, and is more power than societies in all countries can use.

Any attempt to make this just a ' jobs and money ' issue is false, and must be opposed politically, economically, judicially, culturally, and religo-wise so as to protect ' Mother Earth ' and save the life of the planet.

Why is this so? It is because the burning out of fossil fuels has already changed the atmosphere by 38% to carbon-dioxide, and we cannot live on the carbon-dioxide replacement. This means that the planet is now in the fail-safe mode ( more carbon-dioxide is cascading into the atmosphere, than nature can return oxygen that all air breathing beings need to live on) and the temperature is rising precipitously portending massive destruction globally.

In Canada it is now a liberal-conservative cover-up on this material truth, and opposite to the propaganda ' Big Lie ' that more jobs and prosperity will result, it will impoverish the ecological organic balances of the planet's web-of-life, a practice already in process nowadays.

The Tar Sands Canadian-Chinese-U.S. deal with fall through with failure, and be unfriendly to all living things locally, provincially, nationally, internationally, and universally. It will be a carbon bomb that will toast the world, and temperature is de facto rising and in fail-safe mode now. This project will speed the process of extinguishing the oxygen in the air globally.

Workers of the world unite!! End pollution wars, not endless wars for more and more pollution. Ye yet have a world to win!!

The CLC--Canadian Labour Congress, with Canadian, American, and International Unions, First Nations Unity, Canadian Law Organizations, Woman's Liberation, Council of Canadians, and other organized and unorganized working classes, Canadian Militias are uniting to oppose this ' Hottest ' of all ' Hot ' deals on the entire planet.
