That is what we wish President Obama would say to Canada, but that is not likely to happen. We will be lucky if he tells them they can’t transport their dirty Tar Sands oil across our country.

Tonight President Obama is coming to Palo Alto, CA for a fundraising event and he will be met on the streets by 350 Silicon Valley and others. Our message is simple, say no to the XL pipeline and let’s get serious about Climate Change. Mother Nature is screaming out to us because we pumped the atmospheric CO2 levels to 400ppm; she is pushing back with record hurricanes, heat waves, tornados, droughts, arctic ice melts and fire seasons. We need people to amplify this message. Bring your friends and family.

Stopping the XL pipeline is not the end all be all to our climate problems, but it would be an important symbolic victory. The southern section is already being built with questionable results.

If an ecologically hazardous accident happens to TransCanada's Keystone XL (KXL) tar sands pipeline, we can't say we weren't forewarned. That's the latest from a press release and YouTube video recently disseminated by the good government group, Public Citizen.

Public Citizen's Texas office explained, "Dozens of anomalies, including dents and welds, reportedly have been identified along a 60-mile stretch of the southern segment of the Keystone XL pipeline, north of the Sabine River in Texas."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
