This thing is to horrific to envision.
And while its not a done deal, and will never be hopefully, this is one time I don't mind the thought of the word " preemptive".
Every state should follow suit, but to bar it from the state, not just divert it ! Thanks Cal

Forgot the part about with this governor being republican, he would probably oppose any other state that tried to ban it altogether..he just wants to go with the "not in my backyard", not a flat out no approach as to not offend big oil.

I am very glad that this infernal pipeline will not cross the Sandhills and Ogallala Aquifer. However, since I live in Omaha, Nebraska, I am apprehensive about where it WILL end up.

Tar sands are not that big of a pollution anymore. Technology changed, and it is comparable to other things.

The only good news about this pipeline can be: pipeline-projest abandoned, the tarsands are going to stay where they are!

All we can say is: it's a bit less bad, but still a bad idea.

Wow a $2 million dollar waste of Nebraska taxpayer dollars. This pipeline is nothing but a pipe dream. I can't imagine how this would work given that it would have to be earthquake proof, terrorist resistant etc...never gonna happen. Canada should just build it's own refinery if they want to sell their oil. I think Americans want to get off the oil fix altogether.

we need to leave the pollution and emissions in the ground and learn how to go without pollution energy that is killing us and the world....

How much is Nebraska Governor being paid under the table to reroute the pipeline. It should be Boycotted completely.

No pipeline through Nebraska period. We don't need the worries are the leaks here or in any other state. Not good enough Governor.
Go Green, solar, and wind we have enough wind in Nebraska to be the leading state in wind technology so why aren't we?

No reasonable person wants this in their back yard.
One can't help wondering, which governor will succumb to Big Business. We all know it will be a legislator who doesn't care about the welfare of the citizens. You can be certain of one thing. No governor or legislator who votes in favor of the pipeline, will live any where near its location.

The governor isn't stopping it, he just says that the does not want it in his back yard. I don't want to see it anywhere in the USA.

The Keystone 1 pipeline that passes from the tar sands through several states, has leaked 11 times in the past year, if I remember correctly. We in the US should not allow any other tar sands pipeline to cross our border.

It sure is a sick thing what government and corporations will do for money at the epense of Mother Earth and its occupants. I can't wait until they wake up and find out "You can't eat money!".
