While politicians are looking to support the Keystone XL pipeline and regular people seem indifferent or excited about jobs, the Kalamazoo River in Michigan is still undergoing a tar sands pipeline spill cleanup from 2010. The people who live near the river tells their stories about young children vomiting black substances, business still not recovering from having to shut down for 3 months, and job creation only for those who have to clean up the spill after the pipeline burst devastated their communities.

They ask you to remember it’s not a question of will the pipeline burst but when.
