How does ending the Keystone Pipeline deal help the environment, when now the oil will just have to be driven down in trucks instead?

    If that were economical they would have done that instead of wasting time and energy building this pipeline.

    Ending the permit for the pipeline isn't only about limiting the production of Canadian oil from tar sands in Alberta -- and enormously wasteful kind of oil production that's accelerating greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.

    Ending the pipeline would also protect the rivers and lands that the US section of the pipeline crosses from future oil spills.  That's something many Midwestern farmers and Native American tribes have been demanding -- not just to protect the planet from global warming, but also to protect themselves and their communities from oil spill disasters.

    As for whether the Canadian oil will just be transported by truck if the pipeline doesn't operate -- well, that might or might not change. We know that if the pipeline is open and operating, it will enable the tar sands oil producers to send huge amounts of fairly dirty oil south to US customers and even US oil exporters, at a big cost to climate stability as well as communities facing future oil spills.

    Lets see, fuel passing through a multi sealed lined pipe, or hundreds of trucks burning diesel fuel with emissions being discharged running through your cities and towns.

    Ever see the damage that an overturned tanker causes when it leaks, or the destruction that a tanker fire causes?

    I have, not pretty.

    Also, his oil buddies will now be able  to raise the price of gas .In my city the price of a gallon of gas went up 37 cents since he stopped the construction, an that is only the beginning.

    Gas will be hitting $3+ a gallon now by summer

    The emissions from trucks is far less damaging than the Oil Spills the Pipeline would suffer from.
