I'll bet this would NEVER pass if the refinery was built in North Dakota by someone other than those owners in Texas. And less land to pollute, but that would make far too much sense.
And so the world ends not with a bang but with a whimper, a Friday vote. I can't really give too much credence to doomsday scenarios anymore. If we're so lobotomized by fossil fuel industry propaganda that we can't even recognize what's happening to the world we CURRENTLY inhabit, not to mention the world we're leaving to our descendants, then I can't get too excited about the national debt we're leaving to our children. Any financial projections we hear about are meaningless when it comes to the choices many of them can expect to make in their lifetimes. When faced with extinction our nation's credit rating may not remain our biggest concern.
