ACTION – SIGN THE PETITION: Shut down the Keystone pipeline: 21 spills in 10 years (via Bold Nebraska)
“Since it was constructed in 2010, TransCanada’s Keystone pipeline has spilled twenty-one (21) times, releasing a total of almost 1 million gallons of toxic tarsands and diluent chemicals onto America’s farmland and into its waterways. 
A company with this kind of safety record definitely does NOT deserve a permit to build another “Keystone XL” pipeline that would increase the threat to our pristine farmland and precious Ogallala aquifer, and further exacerbate our climate crisis.
We agree with Sen. Bernie Sanders, who said on Nov. 24 that if elected President he’d shut down the Keystone pipeline that “should never have been built in the first place.”
