Native American politician Winona LaDuke warned us a year ago that oil would be drowning our forests. She means the Canadian Alberta tar sands project, the "single largest industrial project in the world." The oil sands are a massive deposit of tar-like bitumen in northern Alberta.
TransCanada Corporation plans a 1,600-mile pipeline from Canada to US oil refineries on the Gulf of Mexico, and say "not to worry, if there's ever a leak, the flow of oil will be quickly shut off." Where have we heard that before?

Environmental groups have called the plan "most destructive " LaDuke says "It is the most evil project on the face of the earth, and I want to do my part to stop it."
