Keystone Xl Pipeline
Latest Keystone Xl Pipeline Items
With the economy as sluggish as it is, former President George W. Bush had some quick advice to bolster revenues and bring a boom to the job market, during a conference in Pittsburgh attended by hundreds: Build the Keystone XL pipeline.
Obama wants the world to comply with IRS rules
A former U.S. ambassador to Canada is warning President Obama that China could gain a major source of fuel if he continues to oppose an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas.
According to famed oil and energy entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens, if the United States were to build the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, it would eliminate the U.S. dependence on foreign oil and make OPEC "obsolete." Hasn't that been an elusive, stated goal of every administration since the 1973 oil embargo, which first introduced Americans to the quality-of-life detriment known as gas lines?
Forty years ago this week, America received a harsh lesson about the dangers of relying on others for energy. President Nixon's decision in the midst of the Yom Kippur War to resupply Israel with U.S. weaponry gave members of the OPEC cartel an excuse to embargo oil supplies to this country and drive up prices worldwide. It became known as the "oil shock" of 1973.
As the Senate again begins deliberations over the Keystone XL pipeline, one of the expected arguments against building it is that it will contribute to "carbon pollution" in the atmosphere. Those opposing the pipeline generally identify carbon dioxide as one of the main culprits in atmospheric pollution.
Thanks to R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. for his enlightening commentary on Richard Trumka ("Richard Trumka's menagerie," Sept. 20). Mr. Trumka's effort to bring more political groups into the AFL-CIO in lieu of fixing the negatives that have hurt the union's image and workers is proof that the many top union leaders are more interested in their power than their worker members.
I watch in outrage at what is happening to our beloved country under the leadership of an administration that seems to have no other objective than to bring America to its knees. We will not tolerate it.
Blocking the pipeline won't affect climate change
