“The effort to stop Keystone is part of a broader effort to stop the expansion of the tar sands,” Brune said. “It is based on choking off the ability to find markets for tar sands oil.”
Nocera is not sparing in his condemnation of Brune's utter incomprehension of any goals or issues outside his tiny cosseted POV buttressed by retarded males and a bunch of little old ladies in tennis shoes:
This is a ludicrous goal. If it were to succeed, it would be deeply damaging to the national interest of both Canada and the United States. But it has no chance of succeeding. Energy is the single most important industry in Canada. Three-quarters of the Canadian public agree with the Harper government’s diversification strategy. China’s “thirst” for oil is hardly going to be deterred by the Sierra Club. And the Harper government views the continued development of the tar sands as a national strategic priority.
Thus, at least one country in North America understands where its national interests lie. Too bad it’s not us.
Read the entire article to understand how the Obungler is a cowardly misfit in the Oval Office, especially on energy issues. Solyndra isn't the only criminal act perpetrated against the American economy. The Keystone Debacle is an equally heinous crime against the American taxpayer and the American economy.
