Oil Pipelines = disasters

Oil Pipelines = disasters

It seems like a good idea, fast, cheap movement of one of the world’s most important resources. Once built, oil pipelines can move the liquid resource quickly and efficiently, thus keeping down the transportation costs. This is the scenario being described by TransCanada and the Republican Party. Unfortunately, this is only part of the story. The scenario they describe completely ignores what happens when the pipe breaks, and the pipes will break. It is not a matter if, but when. It seems ... Full Story

        Keystone Pipeline Means Dearer Gas, Few Jobs  By Jonathan Alter “I’ll get us that oil from Canada,” Mitt Romney said in his victory speech after the Michigan primary.

Keystone XL Cops

The Keystone Cops comedy continues but this is no silent movie. Colorado congressman Mike Coffman claims to lead an effort to call on the president to reconsider his denial of the pipeline. Well, the pipeline does not cross his district so why should he be concerned about the problems this leaky pipe line will bring to those along it route.

Coffman & Tipton bash Obama over Keystone

Colorado Congressmen Coffman and Tipton (and Republican Presidential candidates) were quick to speak out when President Obama nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline. They continue to repeat the shopworn false claims about the pipeline. First and foremost, the oil was not destined to give the United States another source of oil. The tar sand bitumen was to be refined and exported, hence the reason it needed to be sent to refineries on the Gulf Coast where shipping is available. It would actually take ... Full Story

What do you know about the Keystone Pipeline?

What do you know about the Keystone Pipeline?

There is a great deal of controversy over the Keystone XL pipeline, the latest addition to the existing Keystone network. The pipeline moves diluted bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands in Alberta, Canada, to multiple destinations in the United States. The current network extends to refineries in Illinois and a distribution hub in Oklahoma. Claims that the importing of the tar sands oil will ease the energy “crisis” in the United States are questionable because the oil in the XL ... Full Story
