Description

The proposed Keystone XL pipeline cross-border segment would link Morgan, MT, at the Canadian border to Steele City, NE. It would have a capacity of 830,000 barrels of tar sands per day. Proponents of the pipeline point to jobs, economic development, and energy security as reasons why the pipeline should be approved, and claim that the alleged harm to the environment is overstated. Opponents raise climate change concerns, concerns about potential spills, and downplay any energy security or economic advantages of the pipeline. The link between the completion of the Keystone pipeline and ensuring our energy security, thus our national security, is clear and compelling. Despite years of rigorous review and strong public support for completion of the pipeline, the administration is now the only thing standing in the way of thousands of American jobs, with the potential for many more, and access to a large supply of North American energy.show more
