Oil and Wax Don't Mix
The Moderate Separatist ^ | July 8, 2010 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan

U.S. chairman of the House Energy and Commerce committee Henry Waxman has shown his level of ignorance regarding the oil sands.

News broke this week that Waxman had urged the State Department to block TransCanada's planned Keystone XL pipeline that would run from Hardisty, Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

This pipeline represents a direct line from the safest and largest non-American source of oil to the U.S. There are no dictators to deal with, no terrorists threats. America's ally and closest friend has a most valuable resource, and Waxman is asking his own government to ignore it.

As is the annoying norm, Waxman's reasoning was smattered with the usual environmental flavor. Funny how the best example of recycling the left does is with their talking points.

The pipeline would also would pass close to the Bekken oil fields and could eventually be connected to the Green River Formation and it’s 1,000,000,000,000 barrels or recoverable oil!
