The National Wildlife Federation writes:
tar sands are one of the most devastating mining operations on
earth--destroying enormous swaths of important habitat for woodland
caribou and many other wildlife species.
Making this dire
situation even worse, we recently learned that Canada's primary solution
to destruction of caribou habitat due to oil and gas development in
other areas of Alberta has been to poison and shoot the wolves that prey on caribou.
The Center for Biological Diversity writes:
If built, Keystone XL would
transport dirty tar-sands oil 1,700 miles across six states and hundreds
of water bodies, posing an unacceptable risk of spill.
