Neil Young To Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada: "[Your] Head is Stuck in the Tar Sands"
Last week, Neil Young posted a message on his official website Shakey's Garage asking the question "How hard should I try?"
Now -- it would seem - that Neil has his answer... very hard.
Neil Young has posted another message this weekend and this one is addressed towards the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper:
Harper's Head Stuck in the Tar SandsSo. If one visits http://www.keystonetruth.com/, one will find "The Truth" -- something it seems often in short supply these days. But you decide for yourself what is "The Truth".
I was amazed to find that Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada, my home country, has his head stuck in the tar sands of Alberta and has forgotten about his responsibilities to Canadians. Trans Canada, a company he backs, is actively pursuing the goal of crossing the United States with the Keystone Pipeline, a money maker for a chosen few that will cause incredible environmental damage. If it goes through it will be the shame of Canada, an environmental disaster that could have been stopped by responsibility and wisdom. It will not benefit America with energy or new jobs. The oil is for China and the world market, not the USA. With only 35 permanent jobs the added US employment is so small as to not even count.
In light of the United Nations concluding that Climate Change is definitely a result of man's activities, I think it's a good idea to learn as much as I can about it.
One thing I did was visit http://www.keystonetruth.com/ to learn about the Keystone Pipeline and its direct relationship to Climate change. It's very informative. If you are on the edge and might want to know more, then it's a great place to go.
If we had to guess, this may go down easier than Neil Young's last trip into the Tar Sands, which wasn't too pretty.
But that's what happen when Truth gets spoken to Power. Strange things happen when worlds collide.
