Hey everybody, my name is Kevin Gomez, a junior Communications major from New Jersey attending the University of Maryland. To start off, I like some of you readers, did not know very much about the Keystone XL Pipeline Project when I started writing the blog. After further research, I have found that implementing the pipeline would cause more harm than good to the citizens of the United States. This is due to the increase in greenhouse emissions the pipeline will give off, and the fear of a possible oil spill that could prove harmful for the terrain that the pipeline would run through.
Now that we have gotten my point out of the way, my goal for this blog is to provide the arguments for both parties in the debate about the Keystone XL project. I hope that you the reader, will take the evidence provided to you in order to make your own educated judgement on the matter. With that said, after following my future posts, I hope that you all will be more informed about the project, and why it would be so devastating for our country to allow.
