About the Numbers

We extracted our data from the Sightline study (of proposed projects in WA, OR, and BC), subtracted the BC proposals, and then added the data from the more newly proposed Vancouver Bakken oil terminal.

In fact, the total emission of carbon pollution is likely much worse than 3 times Keystone XL, because the Sightline numbers exclude the carbon cost of shipping and processing the fuel (which is particularly high for gas that has to be fracked, piped, and then super-cooled into liquefied natural gas for shipment).

Below is the Sightline chart for all the current NW proposals (this includes BC).
