The Tar Sands Debate

The Tar Sands Debate

  The Maine Chapter of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Council of Maine sponsored a public forum in Portland. The focus of the discussion was the proposal to pump tar sand oil from Canada to South Portland, where it would be delivered to tankers to ship to the Gulf Coast.

The forum featured presentations by nationally-recognized experts including Jim Murphy from The National Wildlife Federation and Kate Colarulli, the director of the National Sierra Club's Beyond Oil Campaign.

This talk was recorded February 9, 2012 at the University of Southern Maine's Glickman Library Conference Room.
