Clear Cutting the Boreal Forest
Shell's Tar Sands Mine Threatens Boreal Forest
Shell oil company has announced plans to expand its Jackpine tar sands
strip mine in Alberta, Canada. The project would fuel more global
warming pollution, hasten the destruction of the boreal forest and
imperil wildlife, including caribou, songbirds, owls and lynx -- all to
extract the world's dirtiest fuel and supply dangerous pipelines like
the proposed Keystone XL. Tell Shell to withdraw its application for the
mine and to focus instead on cleaner sources of energy.
