Laying Down The Keystone XL Pipeline

Argument in favor

Expanding the Keystone pipeline will be a huge economic boon while helping the U.S. decrease dependence on foreign oil.

There is no excuse why White House opposition has continuously prevented what was vitally needed before he assumed office, which was to receive Canadian investment and which has even been cleared in multiple redundant EPA studies.

I don't like the pipeline but it's better than all the crude oil trains. We obviously need to move faster to get off oil.

It's simply not worth the environmental hazard that this pipeline will bring along with it. The 35 permanent jobs and the extreme amount of emissions is not worth the financial gain out of this pipeline. Future generations will ask our generation what were we thinking if we enacted this pipeline. Climate change leads to worse weather conditions (bigger droughts, etc.) and more horrific disasters, and it's simply NOT WORTH IT. LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.

First, no be of the oil from Canada will remain in the US. All oil transported by the Keystone pipeline is for export to other countries. Second, the number of jobs to be created by this project have been grossly exaggerated. This is a bad and dangerous project that only benefits the Koch brothers.

    It's a shortsighted solution to a temporary problem. We need more work on energy solutions that don't destroy the environment.

    We can't sacrifice the wellbeing of the earth to create jobs in the short term.

    Again, this is sacred land. Greed should not be the driving force in this country. It doesn't matter how many jobs we have if we are all dying from poisoning our water and land.

    This is a threat to our public health and a contributor to climate change. We must prioritize people, not polluters. http://lwv.org/tags/keystone-xl-pipeline

    The pipeline funds should be redirected towards both R&D and implementation of clean energy generators. Jobs would be created for the construction and maintenance of such things as wind turbines and solar panels.

    Come on you guys. It's not that complicated to be good. Protect the environment. Support clean energy to create jobs. Protect women's reproductive rights. Don't jail potheads. Try to stay out of wars. Be civil and decent unlike our current scary president. Anyway I'm not voting for anyone who can't just do these few simple things and now thanks to this ap it's easy to watch the voting record of our public servants

    It it time to move beyond our addiction to fossil fuels to develop renewable energies. Water is a more vital resource which we cannot afford to squander.

    This is a gigantic infringement on indigenous rights and lands, huge potential for environmental destruction, and is just a push to build oil ($$$$) infrastructure to make us depend on oil companies, instead of solar or wind energy.

    Would much rather see a bill passed that creates jobs in the clean energy sector.
