Although many in the United States support the TransCanada Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, most of those supporters cannot be found in Nebraska.

It is here, where you'll find continued resistance to the pipeline project. And why not?

As Jane Kleeb, director of Bold Nebraska put it, “...Americans are being asked to put clean water at risk and Nebraskans are being asked to give up their property rights for an extreme form of energy that will add nothing to our energy security. We are subsidizing this extreme form of energy to boot with over 1 billion of our tax payer dollars used to retrofit a Saudi-owned refinery for their tar sands headed straight to the export market.”
