Neither do they know that evenif surfaced mined the lands are restored to pristine condition. Subsurface production does very little harm to the environment and damage is repaired. The Keystone pipeline is a no brainer. I have carefully reviewed all of the technical material - again -loony thoughts over science & engineering. It is impossible to get through to the loons - their stand is - "Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is ma
