It's not about the environment. It's about control and the over-hyped, hyper-unrealistic fears of a small body of people. If the arguments against Keystone were based on the engineering or security or the cost or something concrete and not abstract like what MAY happen under the worst case scenario the greenies would have an open and shut case. But they don't. They've been given the respect of a hearing, it's time for them to shut-up and sit down while progress moves forward. Although I think pushing oil sands thousands of miles seems like an inefficient idea, maybe I'm wrong and the proof will be in the product. Let's find out.

Yea and the dreaded CO2 evil wackNut Gas, is only 0.0350% of our atmosphere.

Well it looks like now not only do the Republicans have what’s best for the economy and people in mind, but they also care about the environment?! Imagine Democrats with confused looks on their faces! The journey to clearing the path for the Keystone Pipeline has been a bitter fought battle, but it looks like now the White House and its administration can’t fight any more.

In a new report done by the State Department it has been confirmed, “the project would not accelerate global greenhouse gas emissions or significantly harm the natural habitats along its route”.
