Keystone XL Pipeline

 

 

The proposed Keystone XL pipeline is 2,000 miles of environmental devastation. The pipeline would transport toxic tar sands oil from under Canada’s Boreal forest, home to many North American songbirds populations, to oil refineries in Texas, increasing the production on one of the dirtiest forms of oil and threatening rivers and communities all along the way. Tar sands oil is dirtier and more corrosive than conventional oil, and current regulations will not prevent leaks and spills all along the pipeline.
