This Keystone XL project is important to the entire industry as the pipeline basically send an overall signal to industry that they can continue with their expansion plans, meaning of course this is but the beginning.
The project certainly will bring huge profits to the producers as well as the refiners, but what else comes with it? As mentioned above, the consumer can expect to pay more at the pump, millions of Americans may well expect to have to purchase their water needs as this pipeline is scheduled over the Ogallala Aquifer, and the displacement of millions of wildlife that will greatly disrupt the environment, to say nothing of air quality and soil contamination.
It is clear the Keystone XL Pipeline project is solely for the profits of a few at the expense of many, with the biggest loser being Mother Earth. It really exemplifies the common wave of what the Kochs and their Tea Party shills have set forth in their agenda against women, only this time they are raping Mother Earth!
That should be the last straw.
