    Need more proof that the Anti-Keystone pipeline crowd are INSANE?

    The Official position of the Natural Resources Defense Council..

    "The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would transport raw, toxic tar sands oil right through the American heartland — from Alberta, Canada to refineries in Texas — and threatens to wreak environmental havoc on both sides of the border.The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would transport raw, toxic tar sands oil right through the American heartland — from Alberta, Canada to refineries in Texas — and threatens to wreak environmental havoc on both sides of the border.

    SO THIS IS the MAIN reason apparently is the transporting oil!

    ARE THESE anti Keystone people CRAZY???

    A) Canada will NOT stop producing TAR SANDS OIL!
    B) Canada will sell 1 million barrels per day to CHINA!
    C) Remember EXXON VALDEZ!

    So if Canada is going to sell and China will transport by ship 1 million barrels a day...
    WE will be at MORE risk to MORE people from another Exxon Valdez then from 325 barrels that will be traveling in ONE mile of pipeline!

    That would be the logical conclusion, but I wouldn't say that another Valdez is wanted by anyone.

    Sad state of affairs, the no-pipeline crowd.

    Well that's why I said they are crazy!
    I mean first of all protect the environment I would think is the credo!
    And if you can't stop the shipment of oil.. then the lesser of two evils is the
    transport that risks 325 barrels in one mile versus 1 million barrels in a ship every day!

    So if they protest the movement of oil at 325 barrels worst case in one mile versus
    1 million barrels each in a ship... come on.. they are crazy!

    Crazy yes, surprising- no.
    What is sad, such fear and nonsense perpetrated by the enviro-crowd carries more weight than facts and logic.
    More weight, because the public in general is ignorant and the ignorant vote.

    Politics sank Keystone XL, Exxon says
    March 12,`12 (UPI) -- A decision to delay a permit for TransCanada's Keystone XL oil pipeline was based largely on U.S. politics, an energy executive said.

    Just three years ago the State Department described another similar pipeline project as "shovel ready".
    It was approved with fanfare. The Alberta Clipper pipeline.

    Sad that so many in this country are willing to shovel Obama's shit. Then eat it.
    What a screwball.

    The American voter will punish the Left, again.

    We are not amused.

    Yep. Logic and reason left the building some time ago for these tree huggers. Clearly, it's not about the planet.

    Never forget? The rabid enviro-whackaloons are Communists in tone and action while masking themselves to 'care about the planet'.

    Thier sole purpose is to bring us down. Obama is on the same page as they are.
