The students at the UT-Austin Campus Environmental Center have put together an excellent video that features both our local Texas concerns as well as the global threats to our planet.
Statement About the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline
From the UT-Austin Campus Environmental Center:
On September 28, the State Department is holding a hearing to get a feel for people’s opinions on this subject and to see if it is a wise choice for President Obama to approve the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline.
We need to give them a clear message that this is not a wise choice and that the students at the University of Texas do not support this project.
To do this, we need to pass a student government resolution by September 28 articulating our protest to this Tar Sands Oil Project.
We also need everyone who can, to attend the hearing on September 28 and to let the State Department know that they must not approve this project.
