Center For Rural Affairs Asks Administration To Reject Pipeline

 

The Center for Rural Affairs has sent a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry asking them to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  Center Director Brian Depew says the pipeline threatens Nebraska’ environment and more investment needs to be made for clean energy projects.

He says putting funding into cleaner forms of energy means longer term, better paying and more jobs than what the pipeline would bring.

Depew thinks the chances of the President turning down the permit for Keystone are pretty good at this point.

Trans Canada wants to build the pipeline that would cross South Dakota into Nebraska and go down to the Gulf Coast carrying tar sands oil from Canada.
