Railing Against Keystone XL is Running Over Midwestern Farmers


Willie Nelson and Neil Young, boosters of America’s farmer, will take the stage on Saturday in Nebraska to oppose a pipeline that would help solve a major problem for farmers.  A rail-jam caused by a spike in oil by rail shipments is delaying midwestern farmers from moving their harvest to market. If built, the Keystone XL Pipeline would help free up trains now shipping crude oil through an on ramp that would deliver 100,000 barrels a day of Bakken crude oil from North Dakota to Montana then onto the Gulf Coast. Willie and Neil rail against the Keystone XL Pipeline while running over the farmers they aim to help.
