Thursday October 2, 7—9 pm
TAR SANDS INVASION in the GREAT LAKES
Beth Wallace, Consultant, Great Lakes pipeline safety issues

In 2010, Michigan experienced the largest and most costly inland oil spill in U.S. history, affecting the communities where Beth grew up. Since that time she has been one of the leading pipeline safety advocates in the region working to ensure proper response and accountability. Since 2010 there has been a major increase in tar sands transportation throughout the Great Lakes, causing this carbon intensive fossil fuel to become one of the largest threats facing our waters and communities. Beth will walk through lessons learned from the Kalamazoo River tar sands spill, expansion projects in the region, and what those projects will mean long term - including the storage and burning of pet coke. She will emphasize how individuals and communities can become involved in the decision making process behind these proposals, including ways to help educate others.
Location: Elks Lodge, South of 11 Mile Road, on 4th Street and Stephenson Hwy. (I 75 Service Drive). Enter parking lot from Stephenson or 4th Street, and look for the Sierra Club sign. (map)
