In this persuasive essay, the student describes the negative impacts of the Keystone XL pipeline, and argues that it is culturally threatening, socially unethical, economically unwise, and environmentally dangerous. Lists the negative consequences that may arise from the construction and operation of the pipeline, and concludes that the pipeline should not be constructed, since the danger it represents is greater than the benefits it may have.
