with eyes open wide
This is an extremely sad, frustrating and infuriating story told by Michael Bishop about what is happening to him and his land in Texas by the TransCanada company building the Keystone XL pipeline. It’s a 4-part series and I really hope you can take the time to read his full story.
It’s incredible how far big business has come in running the government and the entire world. They mow over anything and everything in their path for more and more money. This is not a “poor me” story. This is the TRUTH of what these malicious companies do to citizens in order to get what they want.
How many complaints will it take to stop this behavior?
And let’s not forget the impact this pipeline will have on the dozens (or more) of streams and rivers that it crosses were it to leak (and it really is only a question of when, though leaks have already been reported and we saw what happened during the floods in Colorado and how that ruined many fracking sites and leaked toxic waste into the environment).
Mother Nature is really NOT a force to be reckoned with.
