The Native American Speaks: 03-25-12

Guests are United States Pres. Barack Obama and anti-Keystone XL pipeline activist Kent Rowe of Wichita, Kansas, a Chickasaw and a retired refinery/pipeline engineer. First, Pres. Obama delivers his Cushing, Oklahoma speech explaining the decision o speed up permitting for the southern leg of the pipeline, from Cushing to the Texas Gulf coast and the refineries there. Then Rowe explains why he opposes building both legs of the pipeline. Among other reasons for opposition, Rowe says is the damage to American Indian archeological and graves sites being done by construction of other Trans-Canada Co. pipeline projects. Rowe also says the tar sands-derived oil slurry that would go into the northern leg of the pipeline, from western Canada to Cushing, is much more likely –four times as likely- to spill as regular oil and is much, much more difficult to clean up than regular oil.
