Neil Young Blasts Keystone XL

Neil Young says the Keystone XL oil pipeline is a “terrible idea” that won’t benefit anyone, Bloomberg reports.

Said Young: “This fuel is all going to China, which is probably the dirtiest place on the planet.”

“Young, who formed his first bands in the city and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, is on tour to raise money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, which is fighting to stop oil-sands expansion on their traditional lands. His tour comes as President Barack Obama’s government weighs whether to approve TransCanada’s $5.4 billion link between Alberta’s oil sands and the U.S. Gulf Coast as production in the province surges.”
