Direct Action in the UK

Yesterday, the Canada-EU Energy Summit in London was disrupted by an oil-orgy performance protest.  Canada’s aggressive lobbying threatens EU climate legislation.  All the big names were present  Enbridge, Shell, Total, BP and was hosted by ………………wait for it………….Canadian High Commissioner Gordon Campbell.  For all the whole story check out The UK Tar Sands Network.  Click on the photos for more info on tar sands lobbying and the fuel quality directive.

The Harper government is spending millions of dollars trying to get Europeans to buy bitumen from Alberta.

The fuel quality directive is legislation that would discourage the use of high emission fuel, aka, bitumen.
