"IF WE DO NOTHING...

...IT'LL ALL BE GONE"

Meet Ta'Kaiya Blaney


Shallow waters I can’t see
Your clear waves lapping at my feet
The lifeless ocean, black not blue
I didn’t help, but deep down I knew

Shallow waters I used to see
Dolphins playing in front of me
The seaweed swaying keeping time
Tidal rhythms, laugh not cry

Oh-oh, Oh-oh
Why do tears fall from the sky
Oh-oh, Oh-oh
We giving up, please tell me why?
Remember the salty ocean breeze
Used to build castles on the beach
Mushing around in the summer heat
Now it’s just oil up to our knees
Bring back the days we used to care
When all of these troubles were not there
A cry for help, this is my song
If we do nothing, it’ll all be gone

In shallow waters I can’t see
The wondrous life God created to be
The tankers and pipelines keep coming through
I turned my head and so did you

Come with me to the emerald sea
Where black gold spills into my ocean dream
Nothing ever found, no life is around
It’s just the sound of morning in the air
Silence everywhere

TAR SANDS ACTION - DAYS 2&3


"52 more protesters were just reported arrested at the ongoing civil disobedience outside of the White House, bringing the tally to 162 arrested over three days. A diverse group of activists are gathered there to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would inextricably hook the U.S. up to the dirtiest fuel source on the planet: Canada's tar sands.
If the U.S. government approves the pipeline, preeminent climatologist James Hansen says that it will be "game over" for the global climate."

"The Park Police decided to hold 50 protesters from Saturday's civil disobedience against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline until Monday. They said this was to "deter future participants" in the protests, possibly at the request of the White House according to Ted Glick. The deterrent failed: 52 more protesters were arrested Monday, the third day of the protests, and this will continue as planned all the way to September 3!"



"I'm a little tired and a lot hungry..
but more than that...
I'm happy as can be"

FRACTIVIST ALERT...

"I'm really sick of our government being run by oil companies and banks
I would like to see one politician stand up in the face of all the campaign money... and say i'm going to do what's right
I'm counting on Obama to stand up finally and do the right thing
I worked for months to get that man elected...it's time for him to do what he said he was going to do"
Margot Kidder
"I knew that land before that big bowl was there"

HOW ABOUT YOU?

"This Was a Powerful Day"
"The only thing we need in here
is more company...
We don't need your sympathy...
We need your company."
Bill McKibben message from jail

CTV News Video Clips:

There has been no US MSM coverage so far.
Hmm...maybe when Mark Ruffalo is arrested.

"People will be held till Monday in effort to deter more protests. The Police do not want the civil disobedience to continue
when the new memorial is dedicated
to civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr."

PEAK FRACKING & HAPPY TALK


"It seemed like a magical thing"

James Howard Kunstler talks about the shale gas scam
on the Keiser Report


"The story has been going around for the past year that there's a hundred years of shale gas out there."

"After the initial production the flows fell off very dramatically."

"They front loaded the shale gas plays with high expectations."

"They played upon the american public's wish that we would have endless energy."

"It's a dodge; just another thing that allows americans to not pay attention to the changes we have to make in the way we live."
