Keystone Pipeline

EDITOR:

The approval of the vital Keystone Pipeline Project should be a slam dunk. We have a chance to create jobs, but more importantly, be come less dependent on mid-eastrn oil. If we don’t, this backyard oil will go to China. Their reckless use of oil will be far more damaging to the world environment than our use of it. Also, China will become more of a national security threat. Yet, our egomaniacal president refuses to budge on this issue. Scary.

    Right now North Dakota's Williston area has more than 6000 truckers hauling the oil extracted + another 6000 truckers hauling the toxic "Dirty Water"...... Don't worry, the 200 jobs for the pipeline (when it's in place) is BETTER than the 12,000 jobs the pipeline will kill.... Yeah, it's generating NEGATIVE 11,800 jobs....

    When Congress guarantees the oil moving through the pipeline will stay in the United States I will be for it, 'til then, no way.

    NO to the pipeline! It will NOT create long term jobs, it WILL send the oil over seas, it COULD result in an environmental disaster, it WILL result in higher gas prices. This letter writer is a wee bit underinformed. Gas prices are driven by speculation, not supply and demand.

    FACT: by 2020, the US will be extracting more oil domestically than Saudi Arabia. We dont need no stinking pipeline.

    WHERE THE US GETS ITS OIL TODAY: Domestic US: 38.8% Latin America: 19.6% Canada: 15.1% Middle East: 12.9% Nigeria: 5.2% Other: 3.1% Americans can be super-dumb. The auto industry has the ability to produce cars and trucks that get 3 to 4 times the gas mileage than what they offer us. But we happily fill up and chug around in oversized tanks doing our pointless errands and service sector job commutes. We will never will the battle against big oil and big auto because our culture has become LAZY.

    If Tyson Slocum's analysis had ANY reasonable basis in reality then Keystone would already have been approved as part of Obama's green high energy price strategy.
