Is Keystone Pipeline Losing Democratic Support?

The most interesting aspect of this week's House vote in favor of constructing the Keystone XL pipeline was not the fact that it passed--which was widely expected--but the fact that it got 20 fewer votes than a similar proposal received one year ago.

It's working... keep the pressure on. Connect the dots. Sandy + tornados in OK + drought = global warming.
Say NO to KXL. Keep those tar sands in the ground.

I do NOT want my country exposed to the dangers from this pipeline; wildlife and clean water would be devastated when a leak occurs. There isn't enough money or the ability to repair the damage. I believe we NEED clean water and a friendly enviroment much more than anything oil can produce; including $s. We can get these from Wind & solar power.

We'll just have to go on to explain why this pipeline shouldn't be build.

And one day this project will be abandoned.

Thanks Cal

My sister lives in Florida and is really hoping that the pipeline will be completed soon. She said that once it's complete gas prices will come down. I told her that most likely gas prices will keep going up. I keep signing petitions against the Keystone XL

I will not vote for anyone who supports the Keystone pipeline and have no problem recalling them if they do.

Well, this is a little bit heartening. Donna G, does your sister in Florida know that all the Keystone results are for export, none will be retailed in the united States?

Lynn Price obviously doesn't care if her water will blow her house up if there's a spark and there's highly flammable methane in her drinking water! Or if someone else's water is polluted irrevocably by a pipeline leak! Shame on her!

This pipeline just keep on giving oil spills seeping out of pipes and their clean up plans well use plenty of paper towels. Good plan high? I am willing to bet some people are cheering this good ideal on. @Donna tell hour sister that this pipeline is not for Americans it is a dirty oil to be sold on the market. For from the Canadian who are against the pipeline themselves. I don't think most people understands how these Pipelines can be harmful to us our water our lands. And as for jobs most of that is earmarked for the citizens of Canada's. Getting informed before acting. Keep the pressure up we just may wind this war thanks oil companies,

This pipeline is not wanted by the American public but I believe it will be approved because our politicians are influenced too much by TransCanada.

Don't be surprised if Barky passes the legislation granting the Norther Extension soon. He is after all beholden to the boys on Wall Street and at Big Oil.

We must support the pipeline blockaders any way that we can. We have to keep acting up, speaking out, and demanding that our elected officials follow the will of the people, NOT the corporate agenda. We have to protest more; use social media more; and keep educating the public through every media available. We have to keep pushing. The Keystone XL pipeline is being called a planet-killer because that is exactly what it will be if allowed to be completed. We need the Green New Deal to put millions of Americans to work rapidly transitioning this nation from dirty fossil fuel energy to clean, renewable energy.

We need system change to have any chance of successfully combating climate change. The blockaders, by slowing down the pipeline construction, are buying us all time to build our numbers and to get people to start prodding the corporate government to abandon and to block this hateful project. The earth is the only home that any of us will ever have; we must protect it from the Keystone XL pipeline.

Yes, we need fuel- but we should fulfill all means of applying rooftop solar, first!

Yes, it's vital to have jobs, and I suppose some *might* be created by a pipeline (or the costly cleanups that result, more likely). But the environmental consequences far outweigh any potential benefit. We need clean energy sources that don't leave muck for future generations--sources such as those our President promised, before the Grand Obstructionist Party began to block his every move in Congress.

It will be a sad day for your continent and our world if that pipeline ever gets built.
A disaster in the making. STOP THE PIPELINE.

An example of politicians voting the party line, instead of their conscience.
