Canada pipeline hangs in the balance

aljazeera -- -- A proposed pipeline between Canada’s oil sands and US refineries on the Gulf of Mexico has faced stiff opposition from environmentalists.

They say production of vast petroleum reserves will accelerate climate change.

Canada ranks third in terms of the world's proven crude oil reserves, just after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from Canada.

so, when there's a problem, it's not "just" a few train cars, it's a LONG fire.

Canada pipeline hangs in the balance. The southern 'US' Keystone XL pipeline will not lower fuel prices at the pump, the crude oil will be refined and the fuel will be exported to other countries for higher profits. A crude oil pipeline is much safer and less costly then transport by railroad or truck!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
**More Refineries are Not the Answer, Stop Exporting Fuel Is the Answer!
*If 'they' can export all that fuel, there are enough refineries already, there are NO need for More Refineries or additional Capacity!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
The northern Keystone XL pipeline can transport Canadian crude oil which can be exported, it's not US crude oil! Canada wants the Keystone XL pipeline, its much much harder to go east or west in Canada than it is to go to the south and the gulf coast!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

They just want to export it is seems. Why not keep it at home and lower their prices on in the US. But the world market drives the prices and we all get to pay. The fuel goes to the highest bidder.

It still takes about 30% more energy to produce gasoline from that thick tar like crude. Read the fine print about the stuff.

Poor article. However, if we don't refine Canada's oil, they'll just send it to China or somewhere else & we'll miss out altogether.

That's mainly because Pres. Obama is dead set against it,speaking,of course, out of both sides of his mouth as usual!! Putting down both economies of Canada and us! Not that he seems to care, more of his famed doublespeak!
