Please tell Norman Baker to keep tarsands out of EU - quick e-action:

Oil from tar sands has been described as the world's most polluting transport fuel. The EU is currently considering legislation that would reduce the emissions from our transport fuels. It could also effectively ban imports of tar sands oil. I am shocked that the UK is trying to keep tar sands out of the EU Fuel Quality Directive. Extracting oil from tar sands is hugely environmentally destructive and produces three times as much greenhouse gases as conventional oil production. Last year you sponsored a Parliamentary motion saying that continuing extracting oil from tar sands was incompatible with tackling climate change. I agree with you. Please stand up to the lobbying by oil companies and the Canadian Government and make sure legislation on tar sands is included in the Fuel Quality Directive without delay.
