Studies Show XL Pipeline, Tar Oils Dirtier Than Estimated

New studies show Canadian tar sand crude and the proposed pipeline to ship it over major US groundwater supplies to Houston's Asian tanker fleet will release more greenhouse gases than first projected, reports The NY Times:

Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline and the heavy Canadian crude oil that it would carry released two reports on Thursday asserting that the environmental impacts of the project are worse than previously estimated, and urged the Obama administration to veto it.
