Keystone XL —- Another Route Possible

For months, many of us have been perplexed by the debate over whether an oil pipeline from Canada should be allowed to run through a section of the Nebraska Sand Hills that sits above the vast Ogallala aquifer. One thing is clear: TransCanada, the Canadian pipeline company proposing the 2,147-mile conduit, did not understand how protective Nebraskans are of both the Sand Hills and the aquifer beneath the state. Most Nebraskans only want the pipeline realigned to the east to avoid the Sand Hills. TransCanada says any change would kill the project and deprive Americans of jobs and cheap fuel from a friendly ally. But you might want to check out TransCanada’s application for the pipeline to the U.S. State Department. Maybe the path to an amicable solution lies in the company’s own documents. ((28 FEB 2011))
