Many people think the issue is over and the pipeline is defeated, but it is far from it.

We here in Nebraska need to fight! I have posted a LOT of stories on this pipeline, and every story has added something to our knowledge of the subject. I try not to post stories that are all the same.

Parts of Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas all use water from our Aquifer. Residents of all those states have a stake in how this turns out.

Obama holds the final key. They called it a victory when he postpone the northern section until further studies have been done. What studies? it is not a permanent job maker. It is not oil meant for US consumption, but to be refined and shipped to China. China is now buying a controlling interest in all of Canada's oil companies. Enbridge, now operating in the US has a bad performance record - - a rupture that dumped more than 1.1 million gallons of heavy crude into a creek that feeds Michigan's Kalamazoo River, - after two years to the day a ruptured pipeline leaked more than 1,000 barrels of oil in a Wisconsin field,

You guys are right. This pipeline not only carries all the risks of spills, it will contribute a huge amount of dirty carbon-based fuel to accelerate global warming. Hurricane Sandy was one of our biggest wake-up calls on that front. Do we want it to get any worse than that? It can, and will. We need to apply the brakes any way we can.

there is some irony when we have a Red State (i.e. usually GOP) fighting something that The Blues (Dems in DC) can control/stop.....
