White Water: Black

Heard a lot lately about the controversy of the Keystone XL pipeline project, which will facilitate exporting Canada's dirty tar sands oil through the US? About the pressure on Obama to approve this ill-advised project? 

The documentary “White Water, Black Gold” is a sober look at the untold costs (to water and people) associated with developing the second largest deposit of “oil” in the world. To be mentioned too, exploiting the tar sands increases CO2 emissions to an untenable level, if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. 

The documentary will be followed by a discussion, and a call to action to booster our politicians' resolve to oppose the Keystone pipeline project. The reality of climate change demands action.
