This would be a major disaster for our environment Congressman Cuellar. There will be an accident at some point and it will be a terrible disaster to our environment and wildlife. This job estimate has been incredibly bloated to push this point that the pipleine will be great for job growth. There will be some jobs created in the building of the pipeline but then what after it is completed? Have you forgotten about the Exxon Mobil recent oil spill in Mayflower, AR, where a ruptured pipeline sent some 5,000 barrels of crude oil into a residential area? Records from Alberta’s Energy and Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) show that, from 1975 to 2010, there were 25,942 company-reported releases from pipelines that transport oil, gas and water. Of these, 9,011 involved the release of crude oil, diesel oil, oily sludge, synthetic crude or oil crude bitumen.
More background:
The proposed Keystone XL pipeline is a terrible idea. Among other things, the pipeline would:

•Transport tar sands oil – an exceptionally dirty kind of oil known as diluted bitumen – 1,700 miles from Canada's boreal forest to American refineries in Texas.
•Cut across the already-stressed Ogallala Aquifer, one of the largest aquifers in the world and a critical source of fresh water for more than 2 million Americans and the U.S. High Plains' agricultural industry – part of America's "breadbasket."
•Bisect the Sandhills of Nebraska, 1.3 million acres of wetlands and home to more than 1,000 species of mammals, birds, fish, and plants.
•Accelerate the refining of the gooey toxic tar sands oil, which generates more global warming pollution per barrel than conventional oil.
•Undermine our urgent need to end our oil addiction and unleash job-creating clean energy innovation necessary to avoid the catastrophic threat of runaway global warming.

This is a terrible idea Congressman!
