February 24, 2015: "Wow — I have some big news. Moments ago, President Obama
issued a presidential veto against Congress’ bill to force construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
In vetoing KXL, President Obama is showing that he’s listened to the people, not the polluters.
This is an incredible moment for all who participated — this is your moment.
I hope you celebrate this news with me today."

Under the high plains of the midwest, there is a resource called the Ogallala Aquifer, which is a subsystem of a huge underground mega-system called the High Plains Aquifer.
- What is an Aquifer?
"Ground water moves very rapidly in fractured rock aquifers like the basalts of the eastern Snake River Plain. In such cases, the spread of contaminants can be difficult or impossible to prevent."
Principle Aquifers of the United States | USGS
This National Atlas map shows the distribution of the principal aquifers that supply ground water
to the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The aquifer shown in each geographic area
is generally the uppermost principal aquifer for the area.
