No KXL!!! Bullet Points For Public Comments, (No. 3)

Here are some bullet points for anyone who wants to visit and make a public comment about the Keystone XL pipeline.

• The inevitable leaks will contaminate one of the nation’s most important aquifers with carcinogens.

• Extracting tar sands oil is going to devastate huge expanses of forest, leaving a moonscape behind and eliminating a critical carbon sink.

• Putting all that CO2 into the atmosphere will kick global warming into overdrive, pushing the Earth down the path to an ever-bleaker future.

• NIMBY is an inadequate response to the Keystone XL. We need to say NOMP — “Not On My Planet!”

• An economy in which corporate profits outrank the long-term survival and prosperity of our species is profoundly immoral.
