The State Department on Friday
gave the go ahead on the Keystone Pipeline,
with the release of the EIR, stating that the "construction and normal operation" of the latest proposed
route would have no significant environmental effect.
This has left environmentalists speechless, stuttering...
Keeping in mind that this pipeline will come from the Canadian tar sands,
a raw form of oil will be traveling through the pipeline, and
it is for China.
The United States will not have use of a drop of this oil, this is just another bad
deal for America on this Administrations watch all the way around!
Van Jones, a former green jobs official in the Obama administration and a CNN contributor,
said Friday that if the controversial Keystone oil pipeline is constructed under President
Barack Obama's watch, it could become part of his legacy.
"Now it's the 'Obama Pipeline' and it leaks," he said, posing the hypothetical situation
of a spill along its 1,700-mile length.
"His legacy could be the worst oil disaster in American farmland history.
He's got to make a tough choice," Jones said.
What gives State Department?
It was said that EPA head Lisa Jackson resigned
early for just this reason.
This is the pipeline 48 environmental activists, including the Sierra Club, were arrested protesting.
Preventing this pipeline was considered by many a must win as NASA climate scientist
James Hansen said the Canadian tar sand exploitation was game over for the planet.
So...then why has The State Department given it a clean slate as of now,
and why is Obama backing
What kind of Change
So much for "saving the planet from Climate Change"
Surely the seas will rise and swallow us all now, even though
Obama has requested an additional 2.6
Billion dollars in increase for
What a racket!
