Meet the Bloggers Pt. 2

Hi everybody, my name is Allyson Gruber. I am a junior management and communications major at the University of Maryland, and originally came from New Jersey.

When I learned about the Keystone Pipeline XL project, I was immediately drawn to the cause because of the impact it will have on the environment. Entire communities will be affected by toxic emissions from the pipeline. These emissions will contaminate the air, and even local water sources. This will increase illness, in areas where people cannot always afford to seek medical attention. People will develop breathing problems, and sometimes it may even cause cancer. None of these people deserve to have their area desolated by the government.

We hope that by creating this blog, we can educate people on why the Keystone Pipeline XL should not be continued forward. Until next time lovely readers!
