Have we lost our Minds

This is such a dangerous project.  The environmental impact is beyond anything that can be repaired.  It seems like an expedient solution to the desperate need for jobs. While TransCanada has over estimated the number of jobs the project might create.  They are failing to underscore that the pipeline is due to run through the largest single source of fresh water in the U.S.  I attended and spoke at one of the State department’s public hearings (which was a joke).  I was glad to see people take to the streets in Washington D.C. and I hope that POTUS makes the right decision on Keystone XL.
