Links om Tar Sands og Keystone XL

tar_sands_608

Nedenstående link-samling omfatter klima- og miljøproblemerne omkring tar sand-udvindingen i Alberta, Keystone XL-rørledningen og de uoverstigelige konsekvenser for mulighederne for en klimaløsning, som udvindingen af de “ukonventionelle” olie- og kulforekomster giver. Yderligere er der en håndfuld links om Canadas lidet flatterende rolle som obstruktør af den verdenssamfundets indsats for at nå en global klimaaftale i tiden omkring COP17.

Link-samlingen er stadig langt fra dækkende, og forslag til flere links modtages meget gerne – indfør dem gerne i kommentarfeltet nedenfor.
