It’s no secret that America has energy issues, but is dirty oil really the best solution? The Sierra Club says no and animates the issues surrounding tar sands pipelines in its latest video, The Dirtiest Oil on Earth.
By adding his voice to this project, Joshua Jackson joins notable activists like Mark Ruffalo, Robert Redford and Al Gore in speaking out against tar sands and Keystone XL. Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, says, “Tar sands oil and pipelines like Keystone XL are front page news, but the bigger point is being lost. This project tells the real story of tar sands oil, climate disruption and political influence.”
The Sierra Club says that polls show that most Americans oppose the Keystone XL pipeline once they learn the risks it poses to agriculture, water, air pollution and more. Watch The Dirtiest Oil on Earth and see how much more you can learn about tar sands pipelines.
Does this video influence your opinion of Keystone XL? Where do you stand on the project?
