There’s more information about Keystone

Please, Alpena News, we cannot go on like this. An editorial in your paper complaining about crude oil prices and advocating the OK of the Keystone XL Pipeline and going over the head of Obama to allow it only illustrates lazy journalism. No facts, just empty rhetoric. The extremely dirty tar sands crude oil to be transported across America through sensitive water aquifers by a Canadian Company will do nothing to ease petroleum prices in America, it is to be transported and sold on world markets, and are tax free for the suppliers, and very little will reach your automobile. And, as any resident of Kalamazoo will tell us, there will be spills. The only way to reduce prices is by less demand, which means increased fuel efficiency and conservation. Please, no more lazy journalism, there is plenty of information beyond the space between your ears.
