Keystone Pipeline

The oil sands corporations want to run a pipeline form northern Alberta to Texas. What could be wrong with a simple pipeline?

Well, because it would expedite and encourage increased burning of "the dirtiest oil in the world" by means of "the most environmentally destructive project in the world," and would tip us over the edge into true climate catastrophe.
