New York Times says don’t build the Keystone XL pipeline (plus update 8/23)

Pipeline will make it easier for the world’s most environmentally destructive project-

In addition, there is growing evidence that sending the “oil” down the pipeline to Texas will result not in use the U.S., but exports to China. Of course, Republicans and oil state politicians say this will reduce U.S. oil dependence. Yea right!

New York Times Editorial. Tar Sands and the Carbon Numbers

Update: U.K. Guardian. What tar sands and the Keystone XL pipeline mean for climate change. Dana Nuccitell. The battle over the Keystone XL pipeline has sparked the largest green civil disobedience in many years. A hundred people have been arrested, many of them prominent environmentalists. This is a good article in the U.K. Guardian. Interesting how we need a foreign newspaper to report this in detail. I guess the American papers are busy covering what Rick Perry or Michelle Bachmann had to say.
