5 Years Later, Still No Compelling Case for Keystone XL
The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline was proposed 5 years ago today. Since then, US oil production's up 44%, gas prices are down 14% and oil consumption's down 1.6%. We've had 3 major pipeline disasters (Kalamazoo River, Arkansas, Yellowstone River). 2012 was America's hottest year ever and 2001-2010 was the world's hottest decade ever.
But hey, Congress must know some reason it's good for the little guy or they wouldn't be pushing so hard for it, amirite?
