A comment about this picture, which was posted at SolPowerPeople's Facebook page, said that the tar sands picture was photoshopped and that this would hurt the case against tar sands. I googled tar sands and clicked images and it seems tar sands are either the pits of hell or green meadows, depending on who posts the picture, but the photo above is similar to most anti tar sands pictures.
Meanwhile an article in McClatchey's under the headline With election over, will Obama OK Keystone pipeline? reports that while the president has given little clue as to whether he will or not, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Moody's Investment Service thinks he will.
The article also quotes Obama during his Wednesday press conference, during which he mentioned climate change, which heartened many environmentalists and caused the media to note that it was the first time in months he had mentioned the subject.
“Understandably, I think the American people right now have been so focused, and will continue to be focused, on our economy and jobs and growth, that if the message is somehow we’re going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, I don’t think anybody is going to go for that. I won’t go for that.”
