Pijplijn teerzandolie bedreigt Canadees regenwoud

Door Stephen Lacey, Climate Progress, 7 februari 2012

With the fate of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline uncertain in the U.S., the Canadian government is looking to increase exports of carbon-spewing tar sands crude in other ways — and the Northern Gateway pipeline is key to that strategy.

[...] what would the Northern Gateway project mean for British Columbia’s rainforest? Watch the amazing documentary [...] [above], called “Spoil,” to get a sense for the consequences. In the film, the International League of Conservation Photographers spreads out across the BC rainforest documenting the unique wildlife and the special relationship the Gitga’at First Nation has with the land.

The film is 45 minutes long, so make time to watch the whole thing.
