  7. Help me research and lay down FACTS I'm at work and can't at the moment.
  8. Please and thank you.
  9. Here are two good articles with research links. One is from Forbes on the economic factors of the Keystone pipeline and why it is a boon for Canada essentially at America's expense. It also addresses shoddy cost cutting. https://www.google.com/amp/www.forbes.com/sites/jamesconca/2013/08/25/what-is-wrong-with-the-keystone-xl-pipeline/?client=safari
    The second article might not be very convincing if he doesn't believe in the science of climate change, but has serious concerns about the type of oil carried and the economic impact of our continued overconsumption of oil, especially the black tar sand oil keystone is carrying. http://www.labor4sustainability.org/articles/5-reasons-why-the-keystone-pipeline-is-bad-for-the-economy/ There are also labor statistics showing oil isn't necessarily creating "good" jobs.

  10. The first two link were from the beginning of keystone XL. This is from last year discussing spillage, contamination, lack of tax revenue for impacted states, poor deals for communities through 2016. No indication Dakota pipeline would be any different.
