I like how people want to pump their chests, support the pipeline and call out those who oppose it as ecofools
if we could seriously get our OWN oil here in north america, and the price drops significantly, id be ALL for it...
Heres the reality: the pipeline comes in. people will have to lose their own land in the process. the oil will be sold to china. gas prices will not go down a single penny, but rise as it has been, there will be leaks and pollution ruining your drinking water and a small core of industrialists will become even richer
wake up white people
Another problem with this is pipeline is that the tar sands AKA bitumen are basically strip mined and because of this it is only profitable when gasoline is expensive. So my guess is if gas drops below $3 this pipeline stops being used/profitable.
I’d sign the deal if…
Canada agrees to buy the F35’s they are hinting at bailing on and thus shoring up the uber-fighter boondoggle the pentagon took on. Secondly 10cents per barrel goes to putting solar panels on public schools and thus fix the cost of energy for our schools.
oh wait, you think pollution is cool.....nevermind
I question why we are transporting it to the gulf coast? Seems to me the reason is to refine it and export value added oil products out of the country.
