I encourage all of my American readers to let the President of the United States know that we support his veto of the Keystone XL pipeline legislation.
The pipeline will create only a relative handful of permanent jobs. The environmental impact of the increase use of fossil fuels from the pipeline will further contribute to the devastation of our climate resulting in higher health, insurance and resource costs, paid for by you and me. The long term costs far outweigh any benefit being shopped around the floors of Congress and in the boardrooms of Big Energy.
Tell Canada and the upper midwest to refine and use the oil locally if need be.
Common sense tells you this is not about jobs or energy independence. Please support the president’s veto.
