We would have to park every single car in America for a full year to make up for the carbon pollution the tar sands pipeline would dump into our atmosphere. Everybody in favor, raise your hand.

He wants to do what's right on climate, but the White Walkers are filling his head with bad thoughts. What if the Republicans come after me for not being pro oil? What if gas prices spike and I get blamed? Get real, sir, the White Walkers are coming for you no matter what.

Climate change is already threatening our communities with extreme weather and costly damages. Fortunately President Obama has the power to stop a major source of global warming pollution from spreading: tar sands oil.

Big Oil wants to build a pipeline to send the dirtiest crude oil on the planet from the Boreal forests of Canada right through the heart of America, crossing the Yellowstone, the Missouri, the Platte and other treasured rivers on its way to Texas refineries.

My hope is that Obama will not sign on to any joint statements that will help Harper ramp up tar sands production -- a process that accelerates global warming and denudes Canada's great boreal forest.
