This is a response to oil giant Enbridge. Their animation of the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline in which they deleted all the islands in the Douglas Channel in British Columbia Canada. For more details, check out the Huffington Post news article here: www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/08/17/lori-waters-enbridge-video-complaint_n_1793400.html You can watch the original animation here www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiVfYb8lt5o Or the animation recently updated by Enbridge with a bunch of disclaimers : www.northerngateway.ca/project-details/route-video/ We love animation, but it is not the appropriate medium for capturing what is at risk with this pipeline. Let's get real about what's at risk. Video created by Shortt and Epic Productions www.shorttandepic.com/

Until we show fossil fuel companies that we're ready for something new, pipelines like Keystone XL are going to keep coming back like an ex-boyfriend who won't get the hint. Now is the time to end our unhealthy relationship with dirty energy, and the first step in this breakup is cutting them off. Help us end subsidies to fossil fuel companies and keep Tar Sands oil in the ground. Find out more: http://postcarbon.org/breakup

Some risks are not worth taking - like turning Vancouver into a shipping port for Tar Sands bitumen. Texas-based energy giant Kinder Morgan wants to triple its Trans Mountain Pipeline to "the world's greenest city", meaning up to 400 supertankers a year would pass through Burrard Inlet, by Vancouver's beaches, the Fraser River estuary, the Gulf Islands and Victoria, putting BC's economy and environment at risk of a catastrophic oil spill. Go to TankerFreeBC.org and join us to help keep our beaches clean and oil-free.

Greenpeace Canada invites you to join the movement to stop the Enbridge Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline.
TransCanada, a Canadian pipeline company, has proposed a massive pipeline which would carry up to 900,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from operations in Alberta, Canada, more than 2,000 miles to refineries on the Gulf Coast. The pipeline, called Keystone XL, would cut through six American heartland states from Montana to Texas. If built, our public water supplies, crop lands, wildlife habitats and recreational opportunities will all be at risk of dangerous tar sands oil leaks.

Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment.
Residents of Michigan react to the Enbridge pipeline oil spill into the Kalamazoo River in 2010.
In the wake of the Gulf oil spill, an Enbridge Energy pipeline ruptured on July 26, 2010. The EPA estimated that over a million gallons of oil leaked into the Kalamazoo river, which feeds into Lake Michigan. It's even clearer that fossil fuel companies are treating our air and water like an open sewer. We can't let this become the new norm -- it's not the country we want to leave for our children.
