With yet another major pipeline break this past week, it seemed timely to post this piece I wrote during the controversy fighting to stop the Keystone Pipeline.
(Photos from Washington DC march to stop the Keystone LX pipeline. )
It worked!Building and opening the Keystone XL pipeline would have been nothing less than suicidal madness for the human race. ALL pipelines leak.
There are a thousand reason NOT TO build these monsters, but only one reason TO build it.
Greed, pure and simple.
Not energy independence, because the figures do not add up to anything but worsening drought and climate destruction.
Please stop the madness. Tell the EPA and your elected representatives to tune out the paid lobby and listen to the citizens who know that a few jobs are not worth the health of our ecosystem.
