Mark Ruffalo Calls For Tar Sands Sit-in at the White House
12 Aug, 2011
Mark Ruffalo, in the growing tradition of celebrities taking responsibility for the world around them, has added his voice to the movement to push back against the Keystone XL pipeline—a pipeline from the tar sands in Canada to refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.
In the video below, Ruffalo says, “I’ve seen the kind of damage that out-of-control energy development can do to water and to communities near my own home, where fracking for natural gas is causing widespread pollution … All these problems are connected. We need to get off fossil fuels.”
Ruffalo has long been an outspoken advocate against fracking and is now helping with the call to the protest the pipeline that will carry heated, toxic crude across our entire country.
