Proof positive that environmentalism (hmmm, "mentalism"!?) has gone completely whacko. Well intentioned but misguided environmentalist pressure stopped the Keystone pipeline & cost the comatose US economy tens of thousands of jobs. Would they rather fight wars & spill blood than use oil from the Canadian oilsands? It appears so. And just what is so terribly wrong with oil from Alberta's oilsands? They claim it has a larger "carbon footprint"; that CO2 emissions are higher than for conventional oil. Never mind the Naval Taskforce, hundreds of jets & thousands of tanks & trucks it takes to wage war in the Middle East. What about the emissions from them? Oilsands oil is dirty! War is what-Clean?? Gimme a break!
What about the millions of litters of diesel fuel the huge ships burn to bring the oil across the ocean, or the arabs who are getting so rich they're choking on American dollars. All in all, oil from Alberta looks pretty darn good if you ask me! Don't forget, the Global Warming theory is falling apart faster than Bill Clinton's alibi, so what does a little CO2 matter anyway? They aren't environmentalists, they're just hypocrites!
