Energy Policy: The president said Tuesday the pipeline from Canada should be built if the State Department finds it will not add to carbon pollution and is in our national interest. But State already has twice.
'Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation's interest," the president said in his speech on climate change. "And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution."
As with Benghazi, President Obama must not talk to the State Department much. For in March, for the second time, the department, tasked with ultimate approval of Keystone XL because it crosses an international boundary, said Keystone XL will have no net impact on so-called greenhouse gas emissions.
Canadian Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver was quick to point that fact out when he said in reaction to the president's speech: "We agree with President Obama's State Department Report in 2013 which found that, 'approval or denial of the proposed Project is unlikely to have a substantial impact on the rate of development in the oil sands, or on the amount of heavy crude oil refined in the Gulf Coast area.'"
The State Department found it "very unlikely" that the pipeline would affect water quality in any of the four aquifers through which it crossed. It also concluded that along one part of the proposed route, in the case of a large-scale oil spill, "these impacts would typically be limited to within several hundred feet of the release source, and would not affect groundwater."
There would be no greater danger than that posed by any of the more than 50,000 existing miles of safely operating pipeline already crisscrossing the U.S., including Nebraska and the Ogallala Aquifer.

Obama Jeopardizes American Jobs.
“If Barrack Obama was a World Leader one thousand years ago,
He would be demanding that we throw perfectly good virgins into a volcano.” He would also demand we jump in the volcano with the virgins.
Obama doesn’t give a DAMN about American jobs.
Understanding that helps make sense of everything else his economic policies have done.
Obama doesnt give a DAMN about AMERICA!

$100 million for a vacation in Africa while the US can’t take care of its veterans. This is sickening.
Hey gotta keep those gas prices high to stick it to the workin man.
Now the sheeple can rest: it can smoke pot to frosting oblivion, that is good. It cannot make fire in the fireplace, that is bad.
Oh, and we are such good sheeples. Bad who stops the wolfsheeple in peace at the Physics Nobel prize EPA, because they are not Earth Flatters, you see. (sarc off)
Not sickening, logical. Climate control is only to shine on his lavish campaigns in Africa while we eat soggy cake and we are the dum stupid sheeple who need him....
1984 Csars are in. The beating will continue until morale improves.
It’s a pipeline, not a factory. You know, ENCLOSED SPACE.
What CO2 has to do with it is PFM thinking (pretty f....... magic).
