Why We Need To Say No To Keystone

The oil that Canada has deep within its chunk of earth’s crust is hardly the light, clean oil that we can see and draw from on the daily in Saudi Arabia. It’s heavy, tar sand crude, which is some of the most expensive, difficult, and environmentally hazardous to refine. Beyond that, it’s not even coming to the United States, it’s going through it, all the while releasing harmful greenhouses gases and, given the incredibly corrosive chemical additive and sand cocktail, running the risk of seeping through these transcontinental pipes. In other words, big oil stands to gain. We don’t.
