  1. Last month, over 1 million gallons of oil spewed into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan when a risky tar sands oil pipeline burst. It’s being called the most destructive oil spill ever in the Midwest. Not only is extracting tar sands a dirty, dangerous and energy-intensive process, it produces three times the global warming pollution as conventional crude oil production.

    Now, the Obama administration is considering giving a green light to a similar pipeline from Alberta, Canada, through Montana and all the way down to Texas.

    Please, join our friends at the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund and tell President Obama: No toxic pipelines in America’s heartland. Not now–not ever.

    Dear Friend,

    Be a Voice for Wildlife!

    Tell President Obama: No new tar sands pipelines >>

    Forests poisoned. Rivers ruined. Ducks drowned in toxic sludge. All because of risky tar sands oil extraction.

    And now, Canadian dirty energy companies want to build a tar sands oil pipeline from Alberta, straight through America’s heartland, to the Gulf Coast, putting thousands of birds at risk.

    The proposal to build this pipeline is in the hands of the Obama administration and plans are moving forward quickly.

    Send a message to President Obama asking him to stop the oil pipeline from being built.

    Tar sands is one of the most environmentally destructive fossil fuel resources to extract and refine. Tar sands operations have destroyed huge tracks of the boreal forest in Canada and created over fifty square miles of toxic tailing ponds, killing wildlife and releasing dangerous carbon pollution into our air.

    There’s no doubt this oil is dirty and dangerous. And the BP oil spill disaster has showed us that it only takes one accident to wind up with catastrophic consequences.

    We’re running an aggressive field campaign in target states affected by the pipeline, such as Montana and Nebraska. We’re ready to fight this pipeline tooth and nail – but we need your help.

    Tell President Obama to block the permit for this dangerous oil pipeline.

    We can’t let a tar sands pipeline run through wildlife habitat from Montana to Texas, putting America’s heartland at risk for oil spills.

    Tell your government to say no to tar sands.
