Caustic tar sands and pipe sections meant for the final phase of the Keystone XL extension over 1,400 miles long have been transported illegally through North and South Dakota over Native American reserves. This is not only a health hazard, but also disrespect for the sacred burial grounds that are excavated for laying the below-average quality Russian manufactured pipe. The tar sands to be transported through the pipeline robustly have been been proven to cause cancer in Alberta, where a network of Cancer Corridor Hospitals was established to treat the quickly spreading disease. Adding more Canadian tar sands to the USA through thousands of miles of additional below- average quality Russian-made pipelines brings danger to the United States. President Obama rejected Keystone XL final phase, President Trump accepted it, and environmental groups sued on 3/30/17 to stop the deal. J Huseman, D Short. American residents do not want miles of land on either side of a 1,400-mile pipeline to be corrupted by caustic, carcinogenic tar sands that will leak from substandard pipe.
Alberta is home to oil tar sands proven to cause cancer among workers and nearby residents. Over 200,000 acres of tribal lands were lost without permission in flooding on the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Reservations when the Army Corps of Engineers built the Oahe Dam. Poverty remains a problem for displaced Native Americans in the Dakotas, who need compensation for the loss of their flooded towns. Lake Oahe is a reservoir of Oahe Dam on the Missouri River. It originates in South Dakota and continues into North Dakota to cover 370,000 acres. Among the different bands of Sioux Nation in Western North America from Canada to the American Great Plains, an ancient Black Snake Prophecy is known. A number of Sioux and other Native North Americans have linked the prophecy with the controversial tar sands transport planned for the Keystone XL pipeline connection in Western USA when completed. People living downwind and downstream from tar sand refineries have experienced significantly elevated levels of cancer.
The Keystone XL Pipeline has been branded the Black Snake, because of the sludgy, toxic, and corrosive bituminous contents it will carry if it is completed. The tar sands to be transported in the pipe can be hazardous to human, animal, and plant health and the environment overall. However, a 2014 federal report stated that the proposed Keystone XL northern leg from Montana through Nebraska would not harm the environment. Still, the contents will harm people, things, and places once it corrodes through the pipeline. Bitumen and its thick tar sands are highly corrosive, especially since chemicals are added to make it flow through the pipes - chemicals that do not come under US jurisdiction.. Some disagree with the government report, likening it to a 1980s study on sugar with results showing little or no harm from sugar to humans. The study was paid for by the Sugar Council. In Port Arthur, Texas, where major oil refineries are located and where the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would end, cancer rates are 15% higher and mortality rates are 40% higher than average. — Chris Tackett, journalist.
Major connection point for proposed Keystone XL northern leg. 36-inch-diameter crude oil pipeline. It will begin in Hardisty, Alberta and extend south to Steele City, Nebraska. This pipeline is a critical infrastructure project for the energy security of the United States and for strengthening the American economy. A study released in the autumn of 2013 found that air pollution directly resulting from Alberta Province's giant tar sands operations affects residents downwind. These residents are placed risk with unsafe levels of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic chemicals in the air. Damage besides cancer can be found in the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system of residents downwind. Air quality in the Industrial Heartland of Alberta, Canada and potential impacts on human health. People living downwind and downstream from tar sand refineries have experienced significantly elevated levels of cancer, with ongoing follow-up studies and monitoring in progress. Reference: Dr. Yiqun Chen. Dr. Tony Fields, VP of Cancer Corridor health related services in Alberta stated that "39 cancers found in 47 people" (83% where each has one cancer) is not higher than average. That is difficult to believe.
The Lakota Nation of South Dakota seceded from the Untied States and blocked the Keystone XL Pipeline in 2013 and 2014, preventing the northern leg of the pipeline from construction. The governor of that state had allowed Canadian construction materials trucks to cross South Dakota and reservation lands without the standard fees paid to the state and without the permission of the Lakota Nation. Some natives were arrested, but the physical blockade continued. Around Valentine's Day 2014, Members of Native American Nations in eastern South Dakota held a conference to plan further opposition to the pipeline completion. Adding to the blockade and future plans is the Nebraska state governor's right to prevent the pipeline from construction across his state - a right that courts have upheld. First Nations of British Columbia -- Nine Pacific Northwest Coastal First Nations in BC declared a ban on oil tankers throughout their traditional territories.
