Hansen: Tar sands oil would “guarantee climate disasters”; Citizens Climate Lobby deserves the highest priority (and sorry I forgot about their conference call last night)

David vs Goliath, James Hansen, Oct 21, 2013Tar sands operations today are ugly enough, but if that expansion happens and infrastructure is put in place to carry the products away, there surely will be a monstrous rape of the land. And from the climate standpoint, we cannot accept the massive carbon amounts in unconventional fossil fuels without guaranteeing climate disasters. …”David” in this case was the Friends of Earth Europe contingent, a small determined middle-aged lady supported by a few young people. …Citizens Climate Lobby deserves the highest priority — and I am very distraught that I forgot about my scheduled time to be on their monthly call last evening.
