  • More on Obama's NYT interview: Obama played down claims TransCanada's (TRP) Keystone XL pipeline would generate large numbers of jobs. "The most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction of the pipeline...and then after that we're talking about somewhere between 50 and 100 jobs." Obama also disputed that the line would cause gasoline prices to fall, saying it could do the opposite because it would lead to increased exports. Obama will decide whether to approve Keystone based on how much carbon would be added to the atmosphere because of it, but he isn't certain Canada is doing enough to resolve concerns about pollution.

    "If we're talking about job creation, how about undertaking some useful infrastructure projects for this country "
    And where do you propose we get the fuel to power these energy intensive projects?

    One of their provinces rejected it, not the Canadian gov. They may be able to influence the gov's decision with their vote, but if not, they have no authority to stop it.

    The problem with "everyone pays in" in our country is that in reality it turns into "half pay in, all take out". And those not paying in are pretty liberal with taking out.

  • Canada's position is that the Keystone XL (TRP) pipeline would not cause a net increase in carbon emissions, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says, responding to Pres. Obama's statement that the U.S. should approve the project only if it did not increase carbon pollution. Oliver says at least 20% of Keystone oil would be lighter crude that would not come from tar sands, and thus not carbon intensive to produce. [View news story]
    BC stated they do not support the pipeline, that doesn't mean they did, or even can, stop it. That is up the the Fed gov., BC does not have the authority under Canada's constitution to do what you are implying.

    Marpy, if keystone is refused, Canada has stated they will simply route it to the west and the oil will go to Asia though BC, or send it east to refineries in Ontario. Dumbass obama is catering to the braindead greenie wackos, who don't realize sending it to Asia would be much worse for the environment. Canada's infrastructure to move oil will be at full capacity very soon, and they will address that issue.

    The guy lost any chance of credibility with me when he preached of needing higher taxes on the rich while fighting a battle with the IRS over a billion or so bucks he owed in income tax.
