  •  Tar Sands and the Arctic Ocean (4+ / 0-)

    I only learned recently that the watershed for the tar sands is the Arctic Ocean watershed. (The other four watersheds for Canada are the Pacific Ocean, Hudson's Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of Mexico.)

    I suppose it is easier for governments to ignore the suffering of the people who live downstream from the tar sands--people living in the Arctic region--because there are so few of them.

    It breaks my heart that this nasty pollution is making its way through the Arctic area to the Arctic Ocean.
