Tree Huggers Try Sabotage Keystone XL Pipeline in Texas Print E-mail

Activist XL.jpgTree huggers of the world are moving forward on a united front to launch sabotage schemes to prevent the building of the TransCanada Keystone Pipeline in the Lone Star state. They are using so-called guerilla-style tactics such as living in tree house forts.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “a group of environmentalists standing on tree platforms and branches attempted Monday to head off work in northeast Texas for the southern portion of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.”

Radical eco-militants were stationed as high as 80 feet above the ground on land near Winnsboro. The eight demonstrators hoisted a banner reading, ‘you shall not pass,’ as they waited in the path of contractors for TransCanada, the builder of the pipeline.”

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, “protestors did not disrupt any work Monday, but they were in the planned route of crews clearing foliage and trees for the pipeline, TransCanada spokesman David Dodson said.”

TransCanada is building the Gulf coast Project, which is the southern portion of the Keystone XL pipeline proposed to carry crude from Canadian oil sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The moon lifts the oceans to create tides but it lifts the earth as it passes overhead and this constant flexing of the pipeline each night will cause thousands of small leaks which will not be found as the xl pipeline is buried underground which hides the proof.

Tom McGregor is a hack. "Eco-militants"?!? Really... Also, the only image that could be found by Tom is an unrelated shirt about Eco-terrorists. Tom, you suck and you make extremely uninformed statements about the news. Don't pretend your voice matters.
