"We've won the debate on scientific grounds: 20 of the nation's most eminent researchers have explained in a letter why it would be monumental folly to speed the process of tapping that giant pool of carbon. It's also become clear that the pipeline would do little to enhance energy security because much of its cargo would be destined for export. And as a series of disastrous leaks in similar pipelines have amply demonstrated, the risk of running this one across the Ogallala Aquifer, a vast underground water table that underlies parts of eight states, is absurdly high."
