Tar Sands

The joint Tar Sands Team of 350 Wisconsin and the Sierra Club Wisconsin Chapter mobilizes to stop new oil pipelines from being built in Wisconsin and to get existing pipelines decommissioned and removed.

We work with landowners, environmentalists, tribes, and anyone who shares our goals. We oppose the use of eminent domain for private gain and laws that criminalize peaceful protest.

Our aim is to stop the flow of tar sands oil through the Midwest by denying extractive industries a means to get the oil to markets via pipelines. In this way, we are helping to defuse the “carbon bomb” that climate scientist James Hansen stated would mean “game over for the climate.”

Our current priority is to #ShutDownLine5. The Line 5 campaign is at a crucial stage and needs your help. You can learn more here.
