Want to know more about what is happening in Kansas with the Keystone Extension Pipeline?

This Kansas Public Radio piece has an update. Plains Justice attorney Paul Blackburn was one of the people interviewed and talks about how much oil could spill in Kansas in a worst-case accident, according to TransCanada’s own figures.

Andrew Ottoson’s blog also often has interesting posts about the Keystone Extension in Kansas.

    The Keystone XL pipeline project seems to fail a great many of the common-sense tests for the human and Earth concerns related to this project. Despite even very recent evidence of the XL’s crude oil spill in N. Dakota, Keystone continues to insist that its financial gain is foremost in the “public interest.” They have evaded state-wide public comment and taken refuge in Federal processes, including the State Department. Only the US president can now give the go-ahead. This is a well-placed political maneuver to force a policy compromise in our woefully deadlocked government. Instead of the common good of all citizens, we are being forced to accept a potentially disastrous pipeline in our state–and our voices not only seem not to be heard, but even desired. Give us a voice. Hold real hearings in Kansas.
