Even though many of us have testified at related
hearings and joined many protests, it is hard to get a
full grasp of all the negative issues associated with
the Keystone XL pipeline. Two men, Tom Weiss and
Ron Seifert took it upon themselves to try to educate
everyone. To this end they rode pedal-powered
rocket trikes along the proposed pipeline route from
the Canadian border to Houston and Port Author.
In Houston, they read their summary, The Twelve
Disgraces of Christmas in Market Square, then tried
to return to TransCanada Corporation with the twelve
“gifts.” See a video of the reading here; you can read
the text starting in column 1 of page 1.
It seems to be too much to expect a corporation
such as TransCanada to have any sense of shame for
the disgraceful misrepresentations - lies - discribed
there, but we should expect such a sense from our
elected leaders in Congress and the White House, who
should be leading us to a renewable-energy future.
