Fwd: Tar Sands Oil in Minnesota?

Here's a letter from Julia Nerbonne, Executive Director of MN Interfaith
Power & Life, about focusing MN faith communities on tar sands and the
Alberta Clipper pipeline. Among the suggested actions is hosting a letter
writing campaign in congregations by early April. MNIPL hopes to recruit
10-15 congregations, and if you click on the link you'll see that I'm the
contact person who has been tasked with recruiting those congregations.

I hope to discuss the possibility of recruiting at least one UU
congregation at the next MUUSJA/CCC meeting, if Nancy, Marcy, and Mary Anne
are willing to put me on the agenda. (I would also like to do a brief
update of the Climate Conversations Pilot Campaign before it moves to the
FUS/CCC action team.)

Today Kathy Hollander, MN350's Tar Sands Team co-lead, and I discussed
having a training session as well for persons who would like to testify at
the administrative hearing on April 3. (I was speaking as someone who would
like to testify and would appreciate a training session beforehand.)
Hopefully I'll have more information about that as well at the March 18

Hello Friends:

Today is a day to focus on Tar Sands pipelines.  Click here
learn more about the potentially devastating impacts of tar sands
extraction on native people in Canada, on waterways and on the future of
our climate.

There are two very important actions that need the attention of faith
communities in Minnesota in the near future.


   Today, March 7th, is the deadline for the public to file comments to
   President Obama regarding the well-known Keystone XL pipeline. Join over
   5000 Interfaith Power and Light voices and register your comments before
   midnight tonight.  Click
visit the Office of the U.S. Secretary of State and let them know how
   you feel about this pipeline.


   Perhaps even more important:  join us in helping to stop the expansion
   of Tar Sands Oil export through Minnesota. MNIPL is supporting the work
   of MN350, the Sierra Club, Honor the Earth and others to bring the voice of
   opposition to the administrative law judge reviewing the Alberta Clipper
   project currently before the Public Utilities Commission.  Did you know
   that, if approved, this pipeline will carry more tar sands oil than the
   Keystone XL, and right through Minnesota?

learn more and submit your own letter to the administrative law judge
      early April.

      And if this is inspiring, click
offer to host a letter writing campaign in your congregation.

 Thanks for taking action on tar sands!

Julia Nerbonne
