Surprising facts about the Keystone pipepline

The Keystone pipeline is a sucker’s bet. From ThinkProgress:

A report last year from Consumer Watchdog found that if Keystone XL was approved, American consumers, especially in the Midwest, would see higher gas prices to the tune of $3-4 billion per year. The construction of the pipeline would mean much of of the oil would likely be sent down to refineries in Texas, bypassing the Midwest and reducing supply. This would mean that local gas prices would rise by 20-40 cents in the region, and a few cents nationally.

Here are some other bad things about the Keystone pipeline:

  • increase in oil spills – on dry FREAKIN’ land
  • tar sand oil is really, really dirty
  • the damage on American wildlife lasts forever
  • MOST OF THE OIL IS GOING TO CHINA, NOT AMERICA, SUCKERS
