EcoEmails

This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at muffinkimber@gmail.com

H2Oil June 10, 2010

Filed under: climate change,Events,Peak Oil — ecoemails @ 9:21 am

Aha another film about the Canadian Tar sands… H2Oil but this time talking about the water issues.

Crude oil produced from the oil sands is the dirtiest oil in the world. It uses a lot of energy and a lot of water and leave a very large environmental footprint compared to all other forms of oil extraction. The process of oil sands extraction uses up to 4 barrels of fresh water to produce one barrel of crude oil.

H2Oil follows a voyage of discovery, heartbreak and politicization in the stories of those attempting to defend water in Alberta against tar sands expansion. Unlikely alliances are built and lives are changed as they come up against the largest industrial project in human history.

Watch trailer HERE and find screenings HERE.

Dirty Oil June 2, 2010

Filed under: climate change,Energy,Events,Peak Oil,Protest — ecoemails @ 9:08 am

There is a new documentary coming out called Dirty Oil which goes deep behind-the-scenes into the strip-mined world of Northern Alberta, Canada.

It is a David and Goliath battle between the First Nation communities and environmentalists fighting against the Governments of Alberta and Canada, as well as the world’s largest multinational oil corporations in a bid to stop tar sands expansion.

Here, vast and toxic oil sands supply the U.S. with the majority of its oil. Told through the eyes of scientists, “big oil” officials, politicians, doctors, environmentalists, and aboriginal citizens directly effected by “the largest industrial project on the planet today”, the filmmakers journey to both sides of the border to uncover the emotional and irreversible toll this “black gold rush” is taking on our planet.

Watch the trailer HERE or click HERE for screenings.

Canadian Tar sands emit on average three times more CO2 than conventional oil production.

Greenvoice is a not-for-profit web site that helps people campaign on environmental issues. The website is really easy to use and was thinking it could be used to increase the promotion of the evo events.
