  •  If Obama really wanted to lead on this... (1+ / 0-)

    he would not only shut down the pipeline, he would work aggressively with Canada to negotiate terms not to develop the tar sands oil at all. Ideally, this would be in conjunction with international treaties from BRINCS and the G8 or G20 as well.

    I don't want to hear that it's not "politically viable." YOU'RE OUR GODDAM LEADERS, SO LEAD. The people a century from now aren't going to give two shits if you thought it was "politically viable." They are going to care about coastal flooding, massive changes in climate, frequent severe weather, drastic temperature swings, poisoned water and air, and the inability to produce anywhere near enough food to feed the hopefully then-stable population.

    FUCK. THIS SHOULDN'T BE THAT HARD.
