Forward on Climate Rally. February 17th 2013.
The largest climate rally in U.S. history took place on February 17th 2013, in Washington DC. Nearly 50,000 people marched to demand that President Obama block TransCanada’s Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and move forward on climate action. This historic level of public participation shows how that we, concerned citizens, will not simply sit back and watch the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline get build without a fight. I am beyond ashamed to be a Canadian, and be connected to the Albertan tar sands and pipeline, one of the most destructive environmental atrocities in history. Obama’s legacy rests on his response and leadership in solving the climate crisis and putting a stop to the Pipeline is the first important step… fingers crossed he steps up.
