Re: Keystone XL Pipeline SEIS ignores “Ecocide” Dear Ms. Walker, Not only does the structure of the SEIS ignore the fact that tarsands bitumen transported by Keystone XL threatens the survival of humanity, the President appears to be heading to a calculated deadly decision knowing full well that the incomplete SEIS is clearly biased.

This fence is a "wall" of ignorance, arrogance, politics and deceit.

President Obama and Secretary Kerry must demand the SEIS be “sent back to the drawing board” and updated with the global impact of excavation, forest destruction, processing, river contamination (toxins and cancer), transporting, refining and burning of the tarsands bitumen. If a decision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline is made on the basis of the SEIS in its current incomplete form, people of conscience across the nation and around the world will rise up in protest. To us, knowingly making such an informed blunder is immoral. Tarsands must remain in the ground -- a truly thorough SEIS will support this conclusion. REDUCE -- don’t expand -- the carbon fuel infrastructure to begin reducing GHG emissions. Sincerely yours,
