Progress, indeed.
That single pipeline system distributes around 3 times as much oil as all rail systems in the United States combined.

Keystone would roughly double the carrying capacity of all current rail deliveries in the US.

The comparison isn't to rail as it stands today, but to rail as it will have to be to ship all this oil. Oh and all those assuredly "carbon neutral" diesel locomotives (and accompanying refining and fuel distribution), track maintenance teams, infrastructure overhauls, etc etc.

In reality stopping the pipeline doesn't solve any problems. It only distributes and hides them. A notable hallmark of most political solutions to problems.
