The thought that the XL Pipeline may be approved as a part of the current budget “negotiations” scares me to death. It’s been on my mind for quite a while now and I did this satirical painting about it recently. It’s marvelous therapy. The Thomas Kinkade appropriation seems just about right to depict the whitewashing of the project by those that stand to make millions off it while destroying the earth. What a despicable mess. I hope common sense will trump greed this time.
