Anti-Keystone XL pipeline posters blasting Canada’s oil sands and carbon pollution have cropped up on the streets of Washington, D.C.
The posters are a part of a two-month ad campaign by Canadian environmentalist Franke James. So far, three posters are up at bus stops along Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenue.
One poster shows a an eagle drenched in crude oil and tar perched on the U.S. Capitol in front of a red and white striped background. Words on the poster read, “No Keystone XL.”
Another poster reads, “Do not talk about climate change — it is against Canada’s policy,” with an image of Canada’s parliament buildings dropped into the tar sands.
“Ironically, being told not to talk about climate change by Canada’s (Harper) government was the inspiration for my “Oh No Canada!” show in D.C,” James said in an email to The Hill. “We need to talk about climate change, not look the other way and pretend it’s not happening.”
