Busting the “myths” surrounding Keystone XL

We have to dig deeper to learn the facts about Keystone XL

As a journalist, I’m well aware that reporters don’t always get it right. Even with the best of intentions, sometimes mistakes get past us, be it because we:

  1. were misinformed
  2. misunderstood what was said
  3. or we didn’t dig deep enough to get the facts straight

When it comes to the idea and reality of the Keystone XL project, there are definitely a  whole lot of “facts” that are being bandied about that appear to be far from the truth.

Check out this article that quotes numerous industry experts who have done their homework on the issue. Looks as if pursuing this project would actually raise oil prices, not lower them. Doesn’t sound too promising, does it?
