Sen. Boxer thinks Keystone pipeline may cause cancer

Senator Barbara Boxer (CA-D) is against the Keystone Pipeline. No surprise there. But she had this to say about it at a news conference on Capitol Hill on Wednesday:

“How are more Americans with cancer in the national interest? How is it in the national interest when kids playing baseball have to duck and cover from dangerous pollution?
According to CNS News, “Sen. Boxer also claimed people in Canada ‘impacted by tar sands extraction’ of oil have developed cancer.”
