I loathe this project with every fiber of my being. I hope every supporter of the keystone pipeline has their homes flooded with oil, just their homes. I don't really mean that but I wish there was a way of making them see and feel firsthand what the effects will be from this epic disaster in the making. Thanks Cal.

Very unAmerican for any American to support this. Why should a foreign corporations interest trump American private property owners? I'm sure if you are in the line of the pipeline and it stands to affect your water supply or trammel over your personal property Allan Y., you might have a different view.

I'm heartbroken. We are ruled by the tyranny of corporate interests and money.

Well, let's hope the pipeline is denied by our national government and TransCanada loses a bundle of $$$. It would certainly serve them right! Let's also keep the pressure on for it to be denied. These last pipeline spills have been a warning that this is wrong. Tar sands is such dirty oil it will accelerate global warming which will end up costing so much more than it is worth!

Be interesting to see how many of these American supportes will have their yards and farms covered with leaks and spills after pipeline complete. Wonder how these same people will feel after their water has been contaminated...

The First Nations have fought very hard and deserve the respect from the whole world. We have heard the words of many past leaders who have been warning of the greed of white men. Now we will see these words
come true. Thanks you so much for all your efforts. True caretakers of our earth.

It will go through and it will take several BP oil spill type disasters before the president officially gets congress to act on it. Which won't happen if the Republicans are re-elected and the congress remains a majority.

I think this quote speaks volumes:

"We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet."

Spammer flagged.

Was there any doubt? Not until the people stand up by the millions in each Nation will this stop. A handful here, a few hundred there, yes, has brought some awareness, has caused some delays. But those who stand to make BILLIONS are not going to allow this to stand in their way. They have plenty of money to fight the legal battles, they have paid to have people in the seats of Government, and sitting in courthouses even. It will have to be millions to stand up to them.....until that, we will have this crammed down our throats.

I'm afraid by the time the majority of the people realize we are in deep sh*t is will be too late and there will be a great suffering going on. If those methane gases are released due to global warming you can kiss most all of life bye bye. We'll be back to the small celled swimmers called bacteria and viruses and everything else will be choked out form the gas.

Sadly noted.Vigorous opposition from Indian people, especially in northern areas, has delayed approval of the full section. The northern part must be approved by the U.S. Department of State, because it crosses an international line between Canada and the United States. The southern leg, purely domestic, was able to go ahead, despite a lack of thorough environmental reviews. I feel really badly for Texas! I definitely agree with Dandelion that it will take millions of people to stop this.
Thank you for keeping us aware Cal.
