Check out what we, the people, have accomplished over the decades by supporting the work of Greenpeace. It may surprise you how close it will hit to home for you…no matter where you live or what your political persuasion may be.
As far as I’m concerned, this is one of the best videos ever made. It’s a stand against how Shell has teamed up with LEGO to have us all, and especially all of our children, believe that searching for oil in the Arctic is awesome.
Are you like me and disappointed you can’t get tickets to a Neil Young concert supporting the fight against oil sands expansion? If so, here are some other things you can do to still feel a part of it all…
Dig out an old album of Neil Young’s, put it on your turntable or in your tape or CD player. Or maybe you’ve got some Neil Young nuggets in your iTunes library. (Recommended listening: Comes A Time, Ohio, and Round & Round.)
Get the music going, then head to your computer where you can learn more about the oil sands and how their development is affecting the local people, plants, animals, and water, not to mention the rest of us here on Earth.
Head over to EcoJustice, an organization that uses the law to protect the environment, to make a donation. EcoJustice just today filed a lawsuit to block approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline, a proposed project that would result in oil sands bitumen being transported across mountainous terrain to Canada’s fragile west coast.
Add your name to 350.org’s petition in support of Neil Young and his environmental efforts.

After all, Canada, there “Comes A Time” when we have to stand up for what’s right! Eh?
