Any more info on that claim?
Yeah, the issue was whether the pipeline would allow oil to feed refineries in the mid west and having to negotiate through Canada verse West Coast (and asia) which would have been shut out. Banker buddy of mine passed that on to me long ago alleging the conservation issue was a ruse. Whether or not that is correct, I have not the slightest idea. BTW, unless ANWAR is opened for drilling, the pipeline will have to be removed soon as it will be operating on minimum input in a few years.
