Massive tar sands spill in Arkansas underscores the need to stop Keystone XL

On March 29th, ExxonMobil’s Pegasus pipeline, which was retrofitted to transport tar sands oil spilled an unknown amount of oil into the town of Mayflower, Arkansas.

This spill highlights the risks of building the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, which would carry 9 times more oil than the pipeline that broke. Even if the oil doesn’t spill, it still pours into the atmosphere as climate-warming CO2.
