Influential science journal Nature says the Keystone pipeline's (TRP) environmental impact is exaggerated, and Pres. Obama should focus instead on coal-gorging power and utility companies: "Nor is oil produced from the Canadian tar sands as dirty from a climate perspective as many believe... [He should] take advantage of rising domestic oil and gas production to defuse concerns over energy security."

  • WHAT??????? A magazine with nature in it's title making sense and not stoking hysteria???? Does the Sierra Club know about this????? Pretty soon they will be trying to telling us that ten shot clips aren't the cause of nuts shooting up innocent people.

  • Lol, the Nature article says that because the tar sands pollute heavily in Canada, it's not Obama's problem (outside his jurisdiction) so he might as well avail himself of oil cleaned in Canada! Seems the Nature folks don't look too far beyond the borders of the good old US of A. Homers!

  • President Obama should set the standard for the nation. Trade in his gas-guzzling Air Force One for a smaller jet--how about Coast Guard 117. Then, when he goes on vacation to Hawaii, take the family with him on the same jet to save fuel. Then, stay there, don't commute back and forth to D.C.


    Oh, and, have photo-ops in D.C. Don't jet all the way to Las Vegas to tell us you want to open up the borders.


    There are probably other savings as well. I would start by scratching the Energy Department and laying off all their employees.

  • I always believed that Air Force 1 is the flying White house and wherever any President travels by air, for any reason, he still is responsible to carry his presidential duties and his security has to be

  • It doesn't matter what facts are published or by whom. Emotion always over-rides fact and reason.
