Al Gore doesn’t like competition against his buddies who made him super rich ( the Arab oil men who own Al Jazeerah, to whom he sold his TV business ).
The Arabs have half of the politicians in this country
in their pockets.
If I were to bet, I would say that the Saudis are the biggest doners to the Sierra club.
These guys are competing against the cost curve so well that it's possible the pipeline wont' be needed ~ on the other hand an oil spill on a rail line is different than an oil spill on a pipeline ~ after all, you can't just turn a valve to stop it!
