U.S. Rep. Tom Rice | It’s time for Obama to approve Keystone pipeline | Other Opinions | MyrtleBeachOnline.com | The Grand Strand of South Carolina | Scoop.it
The Obama Administration's State Department has issued its final opinion on the Keystone pipeline. It concludes that the pipeline will have no material adverse environmental impact.
Sandra Bundy's insight:

On the surface the points made here appear valid.  What is of concern are the potential enviornmental impacts from tar sands production. There are many risks with approving the Keystone pipeline, ask the folks in Kalamazoo.   Isn't a better option to invest in cleaner alternatives, including smart growth and alternatives to dependence on cars?  Does increasing our carbon footprint 3 to 4 times using tar sands production make sense?
