    Canadian government wants special treatment for the
    world’s dirtiest oil. In first overseas trip, President
    Obama must stand strong on clean energy and sufficient
    climate policies.

    BRIEF BACKGROUND:
    On February 19, President Obama travels to Canada on his
    first presidential visit abroad, where he will face
    pressure from the Government of Canada to support
    production of Alberta tar sands oil. Called oil sands by
    proponents, tar sands are the very dirtiest of fossil
    fuels. Producing oil from tar sands emits three times the
    global warming pollution as conventional oil, requires
    excessive amounts of energy and fresh water, and destroys
    huge swaths of ancient boreal forest.

    President Barack Obama must be strongly encouraged to
    stand strong on his new energy economy agenda and
    commitment to urgently address climate change, and reject
    entreaties from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to
    shelter the dirtiest oil on Earth from global warming
    regulation. Let the President know how seriously you take
    climate change, urging him to reject tar sands and
    support further immediate urgent action in pursuit of
    sufficient climate change policies.

    Alberta Canada’s tar sands development is the most ecologically destructive project in the world; destroying vast natural water rich boreal ecosystems, perpetuating global addiction to fossil fuels, and ensuring abrupt climate change. Tar sands and their pipelines must be stopped using all means necessary. Please start by protesting for disapproval of massive pipelines which will facilitate continued fossil fuel dependency,
