There was a time when corn fields were just highly toxic soils where manufactured seeds grew tall. Bumblebees would fly by and die by the thousands in parking lots. Adult corn would graduate to food processing facilities to become cyrup for sodas and GMO meats. The lucky ones would go on to jobs clogging fat people’s arteries. Life remained decent and beautiful for corn, so the corporations decided to run oil pipelines underneath the farms.

While Keystone XL continues to be pushed through Congress as a safe, clean method of transportation for bitumen from Alberta’s tar sands, pipelines continue to explode in towns, rivers, and farms.
