If people treated airline crashes they way they're treating this, flight would have been banned in 1961.

I don't know many airline crashes that after they crash they continue to damage the land, the animals, and the peoples lives around the area. Can you show how they do this?

A big point about the Keystone XL Pipeline is an aquifier that it can contaminate. When is the last time an airplane crashed and destroyed a water supply for states across the country?

And let's not forget no one is saying we shouldn't use the oil. If Canada wants to build a refinery on their land they are completely capable of it. It doesn't make sense to build a pipeline across our country that puts lives, the land, and our water at danger so a few people can make loads of money from it.

They can build a refinery near the oil if they want to make money from it.  There is no way to even cross this example to airlines.

That's just sickening. People are going to be dealing with their yards being contaminated by oil for years to come from the looks of it.  The whole Keystone XL thing just makes me ill.

 Anyone want to live in that cul du sac? Can you imagine the actual financial and potential health hit those families just suffered?

I don't understand why we need to be the gateway of Canada's muck to the rest of the world. They can keep it there, or send the pipeline over their own land. Which they can't do because the Canadian people said a firm 'no'.

Those peoples property values just took a HUGE hit. People buy homes because they want a safe place for their kids, they want a yard for them to play in, they want to have backyard parties/bar b ques with family and friends or they simply want to be able to plant a garden of some kind among other reasons. These people will not be able to sell their homes except maybe at a loss and who wants to send their kids to play in the yard when there's a good possibility those kids will end up covered in oil seeping up from the ground. As for any type of garden...forget it for years to come. Unless, of course, someone is going to pay to not only dig up those yards but dig down past the point of any oil being present, then replace all that soil and lawn. I doubt the oil companies responsible are going to be doing that for all those families any time soon.
