Introduction The project from this unit, the keystone pipeline XL, I have learn a lot. Because the keystone pipeline is a big pipe that extracts canadian tar sands (dirty oil) so we can provide many benefits to our needs. However, this can also cause us our planet to being worse than it was before. Since the pipe is going to be extra long, there is a risk in the pipe to leek since it’s huge. And if it does, chances are it will contaminate other people’s drinking water from other countries, and we sorta don’t want that to happen. But there are super benefits from taking this oil like more jobs, better economic, and more money from our country so it’s a big trade off in exchange for C02 in the air.
Ugly truth fact:
- Sea levels rise (greatly)
- Destroying Forest's
- Environmental problems
- Helps the enemies in Iraq
- We're using tar sand (dirty oil!)
Source(s) used for all paragraphs:
- More jobs
- $585 million estimated worth of barrels
- They say it's safe (no leeks = reliable)
- 9% of the US is unemployed
- XL pipes = no fracking
(Badluck Gus turns on the television on NBC news 7. Madam enters the room.) WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!? NOT ONLY THEY’RE GONNA WIPEOUT OTHER COUNTRIES RESOURCES, BUT THEY ARE ALSO GONNA DAMAGE OUR DRINKING SUPPLY AND RUIN OUR ATMOSPHERE. THIS REMINDS ME OF WORLD WAR 2, EXCEPT, WE’RE DUMPING A CHEMICAL BOMB INTO OUR CITY ALL OVER AGAIN. WHEN WILL THESE PEOPLE START REALIZING, ‘WAKE UP’ TO THIS PROBLEM. WHEN WILL THESE FAT, LAZY, UNCARING COUNTRY REALIZE THE SITUATION!? PERHAPS WHEN THE END OF TIMES COMES? (Talking to his maid.) IN A NUTSHELL, “OH, WE DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORLD IS DYING BUT, WE JUST DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT.” SINCE WHEN HAS THE WORLD HAS A PRICE TAG ON IT!? WTF BRO!? THE PRESIDENT IS A FRICKIN’ SLAVE, WHAT A MORON. MADAM, WOULD YOU BE A KIND AND GO GET ME SOME DRINKING WATER? JUST SPIT ON ME! GREEDY PEOPLE, THEY'RE MILKING OTHER COUNTRIES, AND CANADA IS NEXT IN THE SHOPPING LIST! “ERROR-ERROR010101”(Madam places new batteries on the KEY-borg 8000.) *Deep breath* I NEED MY ASTHMA PUMP! *GASP* I CAN NOT BREATH EASY! *GASP* I CAN NOT THANK YOU ANY BETTER THAN THIS, THANK YOU. I HATE THIS WORLD, WE’RE NOT CYBORGS, WE’RE HUMAN, ANIMALS LIKE THEM. WE CAN NOT KEEP THINKING ABOUT OURSELVES. NEXT THING YOU KNOW IT, WE’LL BE DRINKING OUT OF THE OCEAN. OUR FUTURE FOR THE BETTER OF ALL ARE DEPENDENT ON US FOR OUR ACTIONS, ACTIONS THAT SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. WHAT’S THE POINT? THE WORLD WE SOON TO KNOW IT WON’T MATTER ANYMORE SINCE HOPE AS WE KNOW IT WILL BE FADING INTO OBLIVION, DUST WILL BE THE ONLY REMAINS ONCE YOU KNOW IT. C02 RISES ABOVE THE ATMOSPHERE AND EARTH WATER LEVELS WILL RISE, WITH A CHANGE OF pH AND THE EARTH WILL BURN UP INTO A CRISP! MAYBE... (TV turns off, they exit.)
Old man Jenkins
These are the new words the people should say when the operation does happen. (Picks up a sprinkler) MONEY MONEY MONEY. IT’S NOT SO FUNNY! They’re all idiots! Seeking only trouble around happy living people and animals. Back in my days, all we had for power, was friction! Don’t think of me as some old coot that lost his mind! Old man Jenkins HAD a farm, till those last pipes leaked into MY river! Used to know the socks right off the youngsters next door when they found out about what happened to all their drinking water. They’re all dirty animals! ALL OF EM! Savages, I feel like we’re all refugees, hiding in a concentration camp during the holocaust. Except, i’m in texas... Thats all what matters.
MONEY MONEY MONEY. IT’S NOT SO FUNNY! (Starts spraying his crops.)
This... Doesn't look like water! (Turns off water.) What in tarnation is this piece o’ crap. (Groups of men approached) Who are you folks?... What's this? No no no!
Don’t greed what's not ours and don’t grief what's theirs. NO! WAIT... PLEASE!! *sob* PLEASE... I WILL NOT LET YOU BUILD THIS ON MY FARM NEXT TO MY RIVER! If you build this pipe under my farm, destruction will happen ‘er! Pipes will leek! Gets in drinking our water, kills a city filled with fishes, C02 WILL fill in the airs atmosphere, harsher weathers, than once you know it, my FARM will smell like a pile of dong! Is that what you want to happen? You’re all fools, ALL of you! I will not tolerate literacy!(Holds him still) you’ll regret this, you all will! Dirty animals. If I can’t keep what’s mine, then none of you’s will! Johnny! JOHNNY!! Call earl and tell him I’m going to be home a little late. And I left a message on the fridge with instructions.
(Kanit Beens takes a stroll down River Bank China mall near Still creak while talking and texting on her phone.) Life as we know it is fading away. This place is all we have to take for granted, all thanks to that god forbidden pipeline... IKR!?!? Jenny? Still there? Sorry you were just breaking up. YEAH... *Snaps fingers x2* Mmm, if the american government wants to make money then why don’t they hire people from america instead of us people in china to get off their fat, lazy american B-HINDS off their couch and fix our country! I mean... Their country. Soon, water level will rise, the atmosphere will grow more thicken, planet earth as everyone know will be a complete wasteland disaster. What's this I hear? riverbank mall? Whaaaaat? Jenny, you’d best be lying to me girl!... A soon to be new build place for a factory, here? But why would these americans take our resource so far out of their region? I refuse to let them inhabit our land in china! Why don’t they build places on their land? Because of that sweet green paper we see it as money and power!?
(Kanit enters Still creek.) Yeah?... I know right!? OMG you remember that time too!? Yeah, I remember feeding my favorite animal back in the northern parts around Still creek. When I was a little girl, I found these cute race of little turtles minding their own business, I remember feeding them, playing with them, and my mom would tell me they were snapping turtles! But we paid no mind lol. Then I found one turtle around here and called him lord tortoise, those species extinct. Now, I see him no more, no more them, their families, kids, and others, all because of the end of times, climate change. Oh right! I have to hurry back to work and tell these folks about the weather and how the pipeline effects the world we live in today! Thx :) # PICE 2! (Kanit makes it on work on time.) Thanks for the script, what time will we be live? K... Thanks. Hello this is Kanit reporting from channel 82 LIVE from China and todays weather is not going to be so great; it’s going to rain for the next 3 days and then it’s going to be really really hot! How much time do we have before the this is over?... Can I say something else before we go off? Thanks. Hello again people I have a very important message to give to all you lovely people about the Keystone pipeline XL project. If these pipelines proceeds with their operation with canada we’re finished! Gas prices will go up, C02 will be filled in the atmosphere, animal population will decrease! And what happens if a unsturdy long pipe spreads a leek? Our waters will no longer be drinkable! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT OBAMA!? This project is a fraud. Well take my opinion in this but I ain't going to criticize on their american government but... All the government really wants is to make money just like everyone else that sits in their house and watches nothing but pointless advertisements! Here’s the circle of life. Go to work, make money, go shopping, sleep, and forget about everything else and everyone else cause your life is so important than anyone else’s and everything else. Go to work, make money, go shopping and forget about the world. Eventually, we’ll run out of everything and every resources. And speaking of the devil, what about terrorist? Yep. The project will help the enemy because america has to pay their country to dig underneath their land! (A huge amount of people at home and even at her work were shocked!) So what's your choice? Will you choose to greed more on what you have and take what's really not ours? Or will you help stop this project? So what are you waiting for? Stop the keystone pipeline XL project and take care of what's first on our planet! After all, since when did the world had a price tag on it? My name is Kanit Beens and thanks for watching the weather at channel 82.
