In the name of the Big Green Lie, AGW, he wants us to bow down and worship his brilliance.
What will it take for the Congress to say "We have had enough of the usurption of power"?
Gentlemen (sort of) It is Time, It is Long Past Time.
Control over carbon is control over everything, and a piece of everyone's action into perpetuity.
It is too important, and they will get it whatever it takes.
Once you can tax and license the breath you breathe, you go beyond totalitarian to just plain total.
So, sure, they'll give us Keystone in return for carbon. Keystone is important but carbon is game over.
The price of a corrupt Congress and Executive branch is Blackmail instead of business. I pray to God for Justice cause America will never see it again without Him.
It’s like being mugged, and the mugger who just stole $1000 from you offers to give you $10 back for a cab home.
The price of no Keystone may be the *****-slapping of the demon party - bring it on, barkie.
Keystone would be good for the country but it isn’t worth putting my kinds into chains to get.
“Terence Corcoran: The price of Keystone may be a carbon tax”
If that’s to be “the deal”, let the Keystone fade away for now. Don’t build it.
That’s too high a price to pay.
Someday Obama will be gone, and perhaps common sense may again come back into fashion. Then we can revive the idea.
Prediction: watch the idiot Pubbies jump at such an offer. They’ll be linin’ up to vote for it!
This column is nonsense. First, Prime Minister Harper is a conservative and has lowered taxes - he won’t raise them. The federal budget is relatively stable, and he certainly wouldn’t do it with a carbon tax (if you want to know why do a search for National Energy Program from the early 1980s - it almost bankrupted the country). Second, the Keystone XL pipeline is hardly the only option for moving oilsands petroleum products to market. The are two pipeline proposals to go through British Columbia to the Pacific coast. There is a proposal to beef up pipelines heading to eastern Canada. The petroleum is already being shipped south by existing pipelines and rail. Rail transportation south especially can be expanded. There is also a proposal to build a dual rail line to the Alaska coast which could double up bringing foreign goods east. Everyday as the planning for these other projects ramp up the Keystone XL pipeline becomes less relevant for moving oilsands petroleum.
Just another excuse and means to destroy the U.s. economy.
