    Do you support the Keystone XL pipeline?

    Do you support the pipeline and where do you live in proximity of the proposed pipeline? By "I live close" I am using that to show you are currently living in a state or a neighboring state that the proposed pipeline will go through, just couldn't fit all that. If you do support it but do not live nearby would you feel different if it went through your backyard?

    If it were too be approved I would live fairly close to it, and I also do not support it.

    Close being simply any two points inside Texas is like saying that NYC is close to Atlanta, GA.

    I do not live close, and I could support it with certain conditions: that all the environmental analysis is done and planning for accidents is done, that agreements are made to keep the oil in continental North America, things like that. Where we are on all that I am not sure as I don't really follow this issue much.

    My city is so built up that that it's kind of a moot question for me personally, but taking the nature of the question at face value, no I would not support it going through my back yard. I wouldn't want the eye sore or the potential environmental problems for a solution that brings us no closer to addressing long term moves away from fossil fuels.

    bold mine

    Is there a precedent for that (in the U.S. I mean)?

    Not sure. I know the amendment to the bill was proposed. I agree with it. Why should we let Canada ship their oil through the US, with inevitable leaks, only to have them turn around and sell it overseas?

    Why indeed? It would be unique to have the phrase "energy independence" actually mean something for a change when referring to oil.

    True but all things considered someone from the very northeastern point in TX would have much more of a common interest with someone in southwestern TX than someone in NYC compared to Atlanta. Since it's going through the state, it would effect your fellow Texans.

    So you are a NIMBY?
