Final Day Of Keystone XL Protest: Over 1,000 Arrested | Care2 Causes

Obama has been such an absolute wuss when it comes to fighting climate change that he simply sickens me. I heard the Canadian viewpoint is that we should welcome the Pipeline, because it means 20,000 jobs. What the heck good are jobs, if they make our planet incapable of sustaining life? The quantity of greenhouse gas emitted to process the bitumen in the tar sands to make usable oil is greater than that emitted to process coal. Better to live poor, than to leave our children and grandchildren a planet that won't support them. How short-sighted and simplistic can people be? There are too many of us, we are over stressing our environment. If we continue, our support systems will irrevocably breakdown. Stop talking about jobs! They are not the point here. These jobs will cause our offspring to suffer in the future. Is that what you truly want?
