Blame Canada

When environmentalists discuss the proposed Keystone XL pipeline project, they often state that their real goal is to prevent Canada from developing the tar sands.  Unless and until Canada becomes our 51st state, I have bad news for these folks: Canada is a sovereign nation.  They have a government that is separate from the U.S.  But, in the spirit of education, I offer a small video clip that will show them how to stop development of the Canadian tar sands.  (This video is available in three flavors.  One is a small .m4v file designed for mobile users.  The second is a larger .m4v file suitable for larger screens and faster connections.  The third is a Quicktime .mov file that most web browsers can play in native form.)
