According to The Guardian, David Cameron has been secretly fighting European plans to penalize the use of tar sands oil.

Tell David Cameron that this is just plain wrong.

The UK government has followed the orders of BP and Shell, secretly lobbying against the European proposal, which aims to officially recognize the higher greenhouse gas emissions of tar sands oil.


Tar sands oil produces between 3 and 5 times more greenhouse gas emissions than conventionally drilled oil.

According to NASA scientist Jim Hansen, the exploitation of the Alberta tar sands signals "game over for the environment." 

Tell David Cameron that lining the pockets of oil companies instead of working for the environment is absurd.

It's time to get the word out on how much the Prime Minister is supporting these destructive measures.
