Environmental groups dismiss a March draft assessment by the State Department that said the pipeline will not raise the risk of global warming, because the oil from Alberta would find its way to market with or without the line. - - - Every alternative to pipeline generates more CO2 while moving the oil.

Why should we build a pipeline for canada that we are responseable for its security and we get all the environmental damage from refining the dirtiest oil in the world and any damage from leaks. The reward from building the pipeline is we get to pay higher oil prices. The only ones who win is Canada by keeping the polution mostly in the U.S. and the oil companies who now sell refined products on the world market instead of low grade oil to midwest refineries. The oil that would flow through the keystone would be put on tankers and shipped out it would not feed the U.S.

The only things this administration cares about is increasing taxes and limiting energy production.

If the Enbridge pipeline oil spill into the Michigan Kalamazoo River basin is an example of what's in store along the Keystone Pipeline route then the whole plan should be scuttled. The ecology affected by THAT debacle should have been made whole again BEFORE any talk of a longer tar sands oil pipeline was even considered. You can take the happy talk (i.e. lies) of its proponents that tar sands sludge spills are no more difficult or expensive to clean up than other oil spills as evidence of what their assurances are worth. It hasn't happened. Let the Canadians rape their own lands for the benefit of international investors and customers if they must, but veto the export of tar sands oil THRU the US or via shared waterways THRU US-controlled Great Lakes locks. If there's no cost-effective way to bring the oil to market then tough luck Canuck for the miscalculation. Use existing Keystone pipeline segments already built for tie-ins to ND oilfields. But NIX to tar sands oil!!!

This is about jobs. Who cares about "offsets"? *** This is about the future of the planet. Who cares about 30 pieces of silver?
