Farm Aid veterans Neil Young and Willie Nelson will come together in concert again next month to protest that proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
Mr. Young, a Canadian, and Mr. Nelson, an American, will headline a show in a Nebraska cornfield near the town of Neligh on Sept. 27.
Earlier this year, protesters carved an anti-pipeline message into the cornfield, which is in the path of TransCanada’s proposed pipeline that would carry oil from Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Opponents want U.S approval of the pipeline rejected. They fear it could contaminate groundwater and contribute to pollution.
TransCanada has said the Keystone XL pipeline will have upgraded safety
measures and should be allowed.
The company is currently operating the southern leg of the pipeline, between Oklahoma and Texas.
A report on the pipeline by the Stockholm Environment Institute, a non-profit international think-tank, was published over the weekend. It said the pipeline could have a much larger impact on greenhouse gas emissions than previously assumed.
