Will the Keystone Pipeline Survive the Controversy?

I’m positive that few ‘normal’ Americans truly understand all arguments for and against the Keystone Pipeline; and they certainly do not know all of the facts. Because of these two reasons, few voters have a strong opinion either way. The only groups pushing for its construction are Republican legislators and the Petroleum Industry. But will the Keystone Pipeline survive increased controversy? The GOP is 100 percent behind the pipeline. Chris

Environmentalists See Midterm Elections as a Death Sentence

Contrary to hyperbole by the mainstream media, the Democrats and President Obama were not the biggest losers Tuesday.

Fracking: Not in my Neighborhood

Oil and gas companies have never been concerned about people or the environment. Although they spend millions of dollars attempted to convince the people of the United States otherwise, the truth is there for all to see. What they do care about are profits. One of their most destructive practices causes more pollution than drilling. Many are saying, ‘fracking; not in my neighborhood. Fracking is the process of drilling underground

Keystone Pipeline Goes West; Maybe East

Controversy has surrounded the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline since its conception over six years ago. It involves a 2,000 mile pipeline to carry crude oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast refineries. Politicians claim that it will bring jobs to our nation, and will help reduce our nation’s need for foreign oil.
