Tell Cameron to Stop Lobbying for Tar Sands!

The UK has been secretly fighting European plans to penalize the use of tar sands oil. 

According to The Guardian, both Shell and BP have been involved in secret meetings with UK government ministers. 

The UK government has followed the orders of the oil companies,
secretly lobbying against the European proposal, which aims to officially recognize the higher greenhouse gas emissions of tar sands oil.

Tar sands oil produces between 3 and 5 times more greenhouse gas emissions than conventionally drilled oil.  According to NASA scientist Jim Hansen, the exploitation of the Alberta tar sands signals "game over for the environment."   

Tell the David Cameron and the UK government to quit taking orders from oil companies.  Stop lobbying for tar sands!
We the undersigned make two requests.

First, we request that you stop lobbying Europe in favor of the extraction of tar sands oil.  These are not the actions of green government, and could be potentially devastating to the life and economy of the planet. 

Second, we request that you stop allowing big oil companies to determine government policy.  These meetings should not take place; but if they do, they must not be secret.  These are not the actions of a democratic government; nor should they take place in an open society. 

We thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
