  • Biden's Keystone XL Cancellation Means Job Losses and a Host of Other Problems

    Saw this on CBN and thought how this is another example of what a menace President Joe Biden is to the United States of America and the world.

    Yep, by cancelling it, he's essentially ensured that all the oil it would have brought must now travel by truck and by train, both of which cause much more spillage than a pipeline as they are incredibly more likely to be involved in an accident, derailment, etc.. And, as your link notes, it burns much more fossil fuels to power those to move the oil, as they must be powered every mile and every trip. Whereas the pipeline has essentially a single fixed amount of fossil fuels burned to create/build it, and a minimal amount to keep it running as the oil flows through it.

      Not just problems for the US.

      It's a massive blow to the already ailing Alberta economy.

        And when the MSM asks old Joe a question do they ever ask about the thousands of good paying jobs he destroyed with a stroke of a pen, sending them to the unemployment line[1]? Not a chance. Instead it's about which video game is he playing (Mario Kart), how are his dogs doing and if next time they can get something to eat or drink

          "The safest, most efficient, most ecologically sound method by which to transport energy product is by pipeline," Higgins said. "They are agenda-driven, not science-driven. It's for politicians, not people."


          The cancellation will likely send oil prices higher. Not to mention the stability Trump was successfully pursuing in the Middle East is likely to unravel, which will also send oil prices higher. And the Left's general hostility toward offshore drilling and cumbersome regulations towards that, which will also send oil prices higher. Not to mention shale. All of which will be felt at the gas pump.

          Can someone remined me again why anyone would want to vote for Democrats?

                        CBN is run by televangelist Pat Robertson who preys on the gullible by telling them they're being healed. I wouldn't expect such reporting to cover the nuances of the issue.

                        Is there a better source that covers those nuances and roughly calculates how much money per gallon that oil will save Americans?

                          rogue powaz apparently can't spell "everybody" in line 3.

                            They can only clarify what is already there.

                              Most of the left-leaning news agencies don't want to cover it, apparently. But here's one

                              https://globalnews.ca/news/7610541/b...line-projects/

                              It can also be found at the Washington Examiner, Bloomberg and Fox.

                              Is there a better source that covers those nuances and roughly calculates how much money per gallon that oil will save Americans?
                              You may need to locate that.
