One thought on “Keystone XL: Economic boon or environmental disaster?

  1. The EIS statement says, “ In no spill incident
    scenario would the entire Northern High Plains
    Aquifer system be adversely affected.”
    Professor John Stansbury, Associate Professor of Envrionmental Water Resoruces Engineering at the University of Nebraska and instructor for the US Army Corps of Engineers risk assessment program reported that a spill in the Sandhills above the Ogallala Aqifer could dump as much as 180,000 barrels of crude oil, tainting the vast water supply in the region.
    The EIS was developed by Entrix, the same company that is used by both the U. S. Department of state and TransCanada.
    It is obvious that the EIS is biased in favor of TransCanada . The US department of State has failed to respond to Stansbury’s Analysis of Worst-Case Spills From the Proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.
    Pipelines break, leak, and spill.
