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.

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.....
