Re-TAR-ded: Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline

Yes, it’s Halloween, but more importantly, it’s also less than a week away from a major protest about a very important issue that no one seems to be talking about. I don’t need to say anymore than I did in this week’s comic, but please, check out the sites I linked to under the comic for more info and to see if you can help in any way.

Honestly, I will be shocked if this thing doesn’t happen. First of all, eventually we’ll have another Republican president, and he will definitely give a pipeline the okay. As for Obama, well it will be an interesting test on where he stands. Leading into the election, I think he will approve it because otherwise they’ll attack him for being “anti-job” and for “keeping us reliant on Mid East oil” even though most of the oil will wind up being sold on the global market to countries in Europe and South America. Anyway, good for all the people in Nebraska who are fighting this thing. We learned hard lessons about oil and gas companies in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico. Do we need to learn yet another lesson right in the middle of America’s heartland?
