house Bill H.R. 3703

Oiling the Way for the Keystone XL Pipeline

Argument in favor

Building the Keystone XL will generate thousands of jobs in the U.S., strengthen the country’s domestic energy supply, and potentially draw in billions of investment dollars.

Ronald's Opinion
We need to use fossil fuels until other ways become affordable. Government mandates, and subsidies must be ignored in calculating this.

Argument opposed

Keystone XL will transport tar sand oils—one of the world’s dirtiest fossil fuels—across thousands of miles of American soil, where a single spill could harm scores of ecosystems, watersheds, and people.

Kima's Opinion
Focus more on green energy. Honor the treaties America has with Native peoples, respect their sovereignty and quit building these projects on or NEAR Tribal LAND. There have been hundreds upon hundreds of contamination spills from these projects that never get cleaned up completely and poison the people and wildlife. We are tired of this, let's work towards a cleaner and less money hungry future.
