I don't know and I don't care. But it will enter the world market whether or not it is refined in the U.S. or some other place.
Now that I have answered YOUR question, answer mine. What make oil tar sands anymore dirty than any other crude oil? The last time you said it was "gooey" but gooey does not mean it is dirty.
Oh, if it was not for Canada's oil exports, Canada would become another third world country!
Yes, your link does work but who wrote it? Surface Rights Group, Alberta? I looked at their home page and they are anti-everything.<quoted text>
Easy. For starters, tail ponds.
About a dozen “ponds” rise 300 feet above the ground and cover 80 square miles ... Almost all the dikes in the tar sands are leaking, but the Alberta government ...
Damage to water table
Incredible emissions in the transformation of tard sands
Laying to waste millions of acres of good farm land or forests
Shall I go on?
Not one drop of Keystone Oil will be burned in the U.S. Who benefits please beside the oil multinationals?
I never said it was gooey. I don't talk like that.
Canada a third world country without its oil exports? If you think so. If you say so, it must be true. Incidentally, oil accounts for less than 7% of Canada's GDP.
See how quickly I answer questions? Now these following questions of mine have been asked and asked several times, Rogue, and they concern something you STATED, not guessed or reckoned or opined, no, STATED. So please supply proof right away that Russia and Germany plus the UN Security Council PLUS the UN General Assembly approved the invasion of Iraq. And, liar, don't tell me to prove they did not approve it. YOU stated it, now put up.
Are they factual? I don't know. Would you happen to have another source like from your federal government?
Good, oil contributes to 7% of you GDP but what does it contribute to your trade balance? Countries that import most or all of their oil are the poorest counties on this Earth.
Canada exported $98B worth of petroleum in 2011.
Out of a total exports of $457B.
And that means oil made up 21.4% of Canada's exports in 2011 which is THREE times what YOU claimed.
And that also would have meant that that would have lead from a small negative import imbalance to an extremely large one if you did not export any petroleum and had to import 100% of your needs.
And yes, when I asked you what was so bad about tar sand petroleum you said it was "gooey"!
Now, prove that 100% of that oil, exported to the U.S., will be further exported out of the United States!
