In Canada's boreal forest, the Peace-Athabasca Delta is a haven for millions of migratory birds. It's no place for even more tar sands development, which is already poisoning the boreal forest's rivers and lakes.
These undisturbed wetlands provide a resting spot for tundra swans, snow geese and countless ducks, but they are now being threatened by plans for a trans-boundary pipeline that would carry tar sands oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
If approved, the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline would lead to more tar sands mining and drilling in the boreal forest, creating toxic waste sites, destroying critical wildlife habitat for millions of birds and generating three times the amount of global warming as conventional fuel production.
The 2,000-mile pipeline would also traverse the U.S. heartland, including the Nebraska Sandhills and the Ogallala Aquifer -- the source of clean drinking water for two million residents.
Please take action by clicking this link to send a message to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and ask her to STOP the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
