"Keystone XL Hearing: Nebraskans Speak Out"
At a State Department public hearing in Washington, DC, Nebraskans Randy Thompson and Susan Luebbe spoke out against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Both are farmers and ranchers along the proposed path of TransCanada’s pipeline. “We have difficulty rationalizing how a pipeline pushing oil across our country to some unknown destination can be in our interest,” Thompson said. “If I can’t sell my cattle, if I can’t sell my land, if I can’t shower or drink the greatest tasting water on earth when there is a leak in our aquifer, where will I work?” asked Luebbe. “Madame Secretary of State Clinton, this is definitely in our nation’s worst interest. Please, for the sake of the children on our ranch, deny this permit.”
