Argument: Investing in tar sands delays transition to clean energy

"Keystone XL Pipeline." Friends of the Earth: "Stopping the pipeline. Tar sands oil is one of the dirtiest fuels on the Earth. Investing in tar sands oil now will delay investments in clean and safe alternatives to oil, such as better fuel economy requirements, plug-in electric cars fueled by solar power, and smart growth and public transportation infrastructure that give Americans choices other than cars."
