International Stop the Tar Sands Day

Did you know that May 5th is International Stop the Tar Sands Day? It’s not as popular a day as say Mother’s Day (May 13th -don’t forget!), but it’s still an important day, or at least a very important cause. It’s a day that aims to raise awareness about the incredible destructiveness of the Alberta Tar Sands, which is considered to be the world’s most destructive project. If you’re not familiar with Alberta’s Tar Sands, learn more here. It will make you sad and angry and, hopefully, proactive.

Let’s “celebrate” by being aware of our involvement in the dirty oil industry and encouraging our governments to not be.  I think sometimes they forget that our environment isn’t something that we can “fix” down the road.  Ecology over economy.
