Spider and Co. have a nice blog post up over at Six Pony Hitch.
It’s short and to the point, all about the good fight we’ve all under taken. This paragraph was especially nice:
As one of my new heroes, David James Duncan, describes it, the earth has two lungs. One is the rainforest in the southern part of our continent and the other the Boreal Forest to our north. Up in Alberta, Imperial Oil and its parent company, Exxon, are quickly cutting out this northern lung and feeding it to the monster that is the Tar Sands. The proposed High and Wide corridor that big oil is trying to build on our tiny little mountain roads is all about carrying oversized - and by that I mean as long as a football field and as tall as a three-story building – loads on roads that are meant for kayakers, and honeymooners, and bears and deer, and rural fire departments, and tourists from Atlanta, and cross-country skiers, and tubers, and ranchers, and hot springers, and anyone who has ever just needed a glorious Sunday drive.
Go read the whole thing. Then check out the rest of their website - there’s a reason our AATH site looks so stellar, and is all them.
