We need Keystone XL, explains Tar Sands Timmy

Cartoonist Mark Fiore created Tar Sands Timmy to help explain how great tar sands oil is and why Americans -- um, North Americans, he means -- should approve Keystone XL.

This video is a couple months old, but in light of the revelations that spilled tar sands bitumen released benzene in Arkansas, making residents there sick and that a TransCanada whistleblower is warning that Keystone XL will leak due to faulty construction, it seems appropriate to circle this animation again.

You see more of Fiore's work at his site.
