GREEN PARTY OF THE UNITED STATES
For Immediate Release:
Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Green Party leaders blast President Obama's approval of the tar sands
pipeline and withdrawal of EPA smog regulations, calling White House
policies a capitulation to Republicans and corporate lobbies

• Greens promote Green New Deal: real action to curb global warming
and end oil addiction, create new jobs in energy conservation,
alternate energy development, and public transportation

• Green Party Speakers Bureau: Green leaders available to speak on
global warming and other ecological issues:


WASHINGTON, DC -- Green Party leaders strongly criticized President
Obama's recent decisions on the controversial tar sands pipeline and
EPA smog regulations, calling his support for the Keystone XL Pipeline
and withdrawal of smog standards reckless and dangerous to public
health and the environment.

"More respiratory disease, more dependence on fossil fuels, more
greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere -- these will be the
results of President Obama's latest capitulations to the oil industry
and Republicans.  The President is trying to appease anti-regulation
ideologues and climate-change deniers in the GOP and corporate lobbies
that place profits ahead of public safety," said Audrey Clement,
co-chair of the Green Party of the United States and a member of the
party's Eco-Action Committee

Greens noted that President Obama alone, without approval from
Congress, has the power to approve or reject the tar sands pipeline
from Alberta, Canada.  Party leaders expressed admiration and
gratitude to the protestors arrested during the White House
demonstrations against approval of the tar sands pipeline
(http://www.tarsandsaction.org).

“The courageous actions at the White House represent the voice of
conscience confronting the dark forces of environmental destruction,"
said Jill Stein,  co-chair of the Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts
(http://www.massgreens.org).  "I am so proud to see that America has
so many people willing to put themselves on the front line of the
battle to save our future.  This action is a defining moment.  It is
the point at which the environmental community stops accepting
inaction and excuses, and starts insisting that our government do the
right thing.  That courage to speak up clearly and not be silenced is
critical for starting to save our imperiled planet.“

NASA's Dr. James Hansen, one of the nation's top climate scientists,
said that development of tar sands in Alberta, Canada, would be "game
over" for efforts to curb climate change
(http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/29/idUS257590805720110829).
Mining oil from tar sands creates three times more carbon emissions
than conventional oil extraction, and the oil will be transported by
the hazardous 1,700-mile long Keystone XL Pipeline to refineries in
Texas.  Despite such warnings, the State Department gave the project a
green light in its environmental impact statement, dismissing the
threat of sharp increases in carbon emissions.

Greens said that President Obama's concern for the revenues of oil
companies and the financial burden created by anti-smog regulations
reflected an administration that measures the health of the US economy
by corporate profits rather than by how many new jobs are created, how
many Americans move out of unemployment and poverty, and how the US is
meeting the challenges of global warming.

"Green candidates have called for a 'Green New Deal' with a plan to
create millions of new jobs in conservation and conversion to safe,
clean energy, the promotion of technologies to reduce air pollution --
such as anti-smog devices -- and expansion of public transportation to
reduce car traffic.  Such measures will help the US recover from the
2008 economic meltdown.  Unfortunately, President Obama has retreated
from his 2008 nomination speech promise that during his presidency the
'rise of the oceans will begin to slow, and the planet begin to heal.'
 He has capitulated to the corporate myth that environmental standards
are job killers. In fact, they are job creators because they spur
innovation and investment in cleaner technologies," said Howie
Hawkins, co-chair of the Green Party of New York State
(http://www.web.gpnys.com) and candidate for Common Councilor of
Syracuse.

"Obama is ignoring the tar sands pipeline protesters and the whole
movement to stop global warming.  Street protests alone without a
political alternative to vote for will just leave the protesters taken
for granted by Obama and the Democrats again.  We can multiply the
power of the protests by mounting an electoral insurgency behind the
political party that is dedicated to preserving the planet -- the
Green Party," Mr. Hawkins added.  (More on the Green New Deal:

Greens cited numerous other Obama Administration environmental
retreats and capitulations: an industry-coddling response to the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico;
paralysis in global climate protection negotiations and promotion of
emissions-trading schemes that will grant polluting industries
licenses to continue polluting; refusal to ban mountaintop removal
mining; endorsement of 'clean coal'; approval of new nuclear power
plants (despite the Fukushima disaster in March 2011) paid for by
taxpayers for the benefit of energy companies that don't want to
assume the high cost and high liability; plans to expand off-shore
drilling with new operations in Atlantic coastal waters.
