You goddam idiot, those goddam oil sands aren't right on the Canadian - US border. They have to build a thousand miles of pipeline in Canada, anyway.
And, you really haven't got a clue what comes out of a chemical plant into a pipeline, do you? Maybe you should learn something about this before you say something really, really stupid like "transport something not as toxic or dangerous."
The least toxic substance is what goes into a refinery or chemical plant through a pipeline. What comes out through a pipeline, now, that's something you really don't want to transport across a few thousand miles of pipeline. That's why those pipelines are very short, from the chemical plant to the dock.
The least toxic substance is gasoline, which is more volitile than crude oil.
You're running out of excuses, dufus. Come with something else.
So toxic & volatile are now the same thing?

The dilbit from the tar sands is more toxic than conventional crude.

Keep guessing, dumbass.

Oh BTW, the pipes running to the docks are shorter because that is where they built the GD refineries.

See Real Dave, these bitches have to find something to bytch about, & when they're proven to look like idiots, they move on to more ignorance. When you list all of Obama's accomplishments they respond with insults. We have less than 2yrs for the president to finally have things his way (majority in both house & senate). Then you hater can begin to assess his legend, & please dont bring up the 6 months he had a majority in his 1 term. We all know little can happen in 6 months not too mention he was pushing the healthcare bill.
You mean america produces more oil under the free market. Oil produced from government land is down.

Our corrupt Obama Media AKA MSNCB/CNN Ministry of Propaganda doesn't report this much but the countries that went liberal/socialist before us have riots things are so bad:

Riots take place at anti-cuts protests across Europe

Ironic now a few people have woken up as the Lib Dems (yes, that is a party name) were crushed last election in the UK.

We are in for a rude awakening because of these irresponsible Democrats here.

Again, what difference does it make? He's producing more oil than than any other president, yet you try to find a loophole in his success. You people are a joke! 1st you argue he's against the free market, then blame it on his success. Didn't bush you that same free market? Why wasn't he as successful? Here's the conservative logic,"lets block everything the president tries to accomplish & what he does accomplish we'll take credit for or flat out lie about it." 2 more yrs, bra 2 more yrs!

The Spanish government will restrict programs that allow people to take early retirement as part of overhauls to rein in the country’s debt and shore up its shrinking economy, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Tuesday.

Bitumen.
Bitumen can't be pumped through pipelines unless it is diluted.
The hydrocarbons utilized to dilute this bitumen are proprietary and not known.
If there would be a leak in a river, these diluents would eventually evaporate & the bitumen would sink & likely flow along the bottoms of the river with sufficient current. In July of 2010, there was a spill in a river in Michigan. The EPA estimated it would take a 2 month cleanup like a similar oil spill, it took 2 1/2 years.
We also don't know how corrosive this diluted bitumen is. This corrosiveness is not only a concern for the pipelines but also the refineries.
So no, this is not the same as a shipment of number 2 fuel oil flowing through a pipeline.
I'm confident our engineers are able to build a safe system, with my $3.60 a gal. fill up today, I think we need it. An estimated 20K jobs sounds good as well.

All of life is a calculated risk. We send men and women into outerspace, a very dangerous proposition, not many question that.

Do you live in one of the affected states? I don't.

That's where you're mistaken, Obama has absolutely nothing to do with our increased oil production, on the contrary he has kept millions of acres of federal land off limits.

But, prove me wrong, show where Obama has anything to do with increasing our production.

It's in spite of Obama, not because of him.

Technological advancments thanks to the free market, not any president ,is responsible for the increased oil production. Oil production from federal land is down, the land obama has control over.

I know its a shocker but they have a highway running across Canada. No sh*t. Right through those high mountains.
They are looking at this XL only because the Canadians told them no.
How many American farmers & ranchers could have their homesteads taken by Imminent Domain so the Canadians can sell they dirty pretend oil?
Dirty pretend oil? What does that even mean? Is it used for gasoline or not?

Btw, only a serious obamabot thinks he had produced even a drop of oil.

Oil production in the u.s. has increased only because it has become profitable to do so. If it were up to the loony left, oil production would not be profitable.
