Looks like my MN is now a part of these pipelines - an old one to be used for the tar sands crap. Our 5-member utilities commission okayed it and denied protesters testifying. Getting's all greed - no one wants to admit that it's unsafe, whether by pipeline or by rail. Noted with more disgust. Thank you.

The Transmountain across BC to Vancouver,
THe Northern Gateway to Kitimat,
the Traillbreaker across Ontario and Quebec
The Enbridge Seaway from OK through Texas
The Enbridge Wrangler from OK through Texas

are all additional proposals for Tar Sands oil.

The Kinder Morgan Platte is an existing Tar sands bitumen to Wood RIver in MO, which would also connect to proposed KXL
The Alberta Clipper and Enbridge Mainline also run that stuff, the first across Saskatchewan/Manitoba through Minnesota, acrosss MI Upper Peninsula, and the other parallels until turning south at Superior (across the bridge from Duluth) down to Chicago and toPatoka, Illinois, where it connects with original Keystone.

Here's a map, called "Getting to Market"::

It all gets worse, with companies wanting to open up Utah and Wyoming oils shale and similar stuff to Alberta, intending to wreck BLM lands for corporate oil profits.

The government will support those unless YOU stop it, as it wishes to please the voters who drive those monster trucks and SUVs towering over you. I know of one small family whose monster truck owner bought equivalent ones for his son, daughter, and wife.

Yes Four fatman barges in and around one small house.

We must use less oil, much less. Go car-free if you can, and help promote walking, cycling and public transit.

All this greedy people think about is the money they are making now, but not a single thought about the future. So stupid!

Noted. Thanks, Cal. With all these pieces, it seems there will be very little need for an approval of the KXL pipeline. They'll just keep adding in pieces here and there, until making all the connections will seem like no big deal. Nothing like having the wool pulled over your eyes! What does he think we are...sheeple?
Well, this little sheep prefers eyes uncovered, will continue signing petitions & sending letters, and has also signed up to participate in civil disobedience. I guess those who have signed number in the tens or hundreds of thousands now. Maybe someone has better numbers.
