    REPORT: Obama to reject permit for Keystone oil pipeline!

    Where is his intelligence?
    This was suppose to be the "smartest" President..
    YET he'd rather have 1 million barrels of oil in a risky sea tanker going to China per day with the higher risk of environmental damage
    then..
    the extremely LOW LOW risk that only 300 barrels in ONE mile of pipeline of 2,147 miles of 700,000 barrels going to the USA might LEAK into holding pools?


    How absolutely f..king DUMB!

    What's dumb is accepting your post at face value. What makes the tanker riskier than the pipeline? Also, we're selling something TO China, instead of the other way around. Let them deal with 19th century technology. We need to be moving towards 21st century solutions.

    President Obama and his trusted advisors may feel that the safety of the American people, and the natural habitant along the prospective route should override any deal to make money without a sound plan in place to ensure quality of life.

    Yes, because fossil fuel extraction is the FUTURE of energy production.

    Not that FREE STUFF from the sun and wind.

    My GOD.. no wonder people like you are proof of Darwin!
    A) Tankers holding 1 million per day would equal 700,000 pipeline one day!
    B) TANKERS go by SEA.. pipeline BURIED!
    C) Tankers are more prone to accidents because of weather, human error etc.
    Pipeline is just THAT! When last time your water pipe broke and YOU didn't KNOW and didn't care BUT believe me 300 barrels NOT going through one mile of PIPE is noticed !
    D) IDIOT the CHINESE will buy the Canadian OIL.. THUS off the market and making
    the USA have to pay MORE on the open market!


    "Technology" like Solyndra??? WHAT happened with that bright star?
    How many Volts sold?
    GM has estimated they’ve sold 6,000 Volts so far.
    According to a Mackinac Center study of government subsidies throughout the manufacturing and distribution chain, the actual cost of the vehicle is almost $300,000 — with a quarter-million dollars of taxpayer subsidies going into every vehicle (via the Drudge Report and David Freddoso):
    Gov’t subsidies for Chevy Volt up to $250,000 per car? « Hot Air

    "Technology".. yea.....!

    So you like Obama think shipping 1 million barrels a day by the sea in a tanker
    (equal to 700,000 barrels in pipeline) IS SAFER then a pipeline buried underground with monitors every xx mile and shut off valves that will limit to at most 300 barrels in one mile is SAFER???

    WHAT is your conception of oil tankers versus pipelines?

    WHICH would create MORE environmental damage?
    THE TANKER!!!! THE PIPELINE creates LESS damage PLUS YOU idiot..
    WHERE do you think Canada will sell that oil then???
    CHINA which will require the shipping by TANKER each DAY!!!
    FACTS are so hard to deal with!!

    I'm glad he called their bluff. China doesn't have the type of refineries at this point to process the nasty Bitumen from Canada's tar sands. I think he should approve the XL extention from Oklahoma to Texas. Better yet, open up the federal water off Fla. and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, lets tap that!
