lindylib:"in order for President Obama to remain faithful to his renewed commitment to combat climate change, he must reject the pipeline proposal. Famed NASA climatologist James Hansen has said that moving to oil sands would be “a step in exactly the opposite direction” of what President Obama claims he wants to do in his second term. "



and in the previous post, you said we need to waste trillions on high speed trains that no one will ride.....because


The Chinese will get the business and have the high speed trains.


Duh!...if you don't build the pipeline, the Chinese will finance a pipeline from the oil sands to the coast and take all the lower cost oil they can get.

To fuel the high speed trains and their industries and cars and airplanes.....

You can't have it both ways.

So, you'd let the Chinese have all the oil sand oil? While we chop off our nose to spite our face?

And you'd feel good about it, while we import oil from countries like Iraq and Kuwait and Saudi ARabia that really hate our guts and can cut us off at any time?
