The tar sands oil will be directed to the gulf coast refineries, where it then will be exported. Otherwise, why did the oil companies vigorously oppose a proposed law that would require the oil to stay in this country?
Still not mentioning that the Canadian tar sands are mostly controlled by the Koch brothers. This pipeline is a subsidy to them and the reason that Republicans scream so loudly for it. It's political payoff.
These #$%$, Koch's, are an anathema to mankind. GOP supporters I might add. Geez, what a surprise. The GOP. Money at whatever cost.
First let me say that I am pro environment. The State Dept. Report released last Friday confirms what 3 previous reports have concluded: the Keystone Pipeline will have no detrimental impact on the environment. It will create 16,000 direct jobs and more down the road. What other dumb excuses can you and that President come up with? I thought he's concerned about creating American jobs? Oh wait a minute, that was before the election.
