Read this report from USA today on Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman’s call for President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to reject the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline from the Alberta Tar Sands to refineries on the US Gulf Coast.
“Heineman said he supports pipeline projects but
opposes the proposed TransCanada’s Keystone XL route that would cross
the vast Ogallala aquifer. In a letter to
Obama and Clinton, the Republican governor said he was concerned about
the potential threat to the crucial water source for Nebraska’s farmers
and ranchers.” (Sept 1, 2011)
