Environmentalists and other opponents of the Keystone XL Pipeline are ramping up their opposition to the project following the release Friday of a largely favorable State Department report -- vowing to hold vigils, jump into the November elections and even perform acts of civil disobedience.

The report raising no major environmental concerns bolster the hopes of the oil industry, some union groups, congressional Republicans and others that President Obama will soon approve the $7 billion project, after a roughly five year wait.

They say the Canada-to-Texas pipeline will create tens of thousands of jobs and make the United States less dependent on foreign oil.

I heard a thought that said the Keystone approval is a deal Boehner made in exchange for amnesty.

a new refinery where the oil is now, makes much more sense.

why pump it to opposite side of the country?

it would be far more efficient to refine it right there.

new technology also would provide more efficient means to refine, but also release of pollutants.

win all the way around, and produces long term employment

The deal was that Boehner would never cry again on the floor of the House.

says whom?

the government who does not own or operate the wells?

A new refinery can sell every drop it converts here in the USA. Both Canada and Mexico also benefit. Central America also.

Interesting idea RS........I would be for it if it was an advantage to the US.

I would have to defer to spook on this one but, I would guess that more than one refinery would be needed.

Your idea might also have the added benefit of keeping more refined product in the US and reducing fuel prices.
Again I would ask spook.

Of course, if you checked out the link I sent you there is the problem of being allowed to build the actual refineries.......

The Keystone pipeline would however create jobs during construction and afterwards during operation.
The Keystone pipeline would lower American dependency on foreign oil.

You have been hoodwinked. 50 jobs after construction. 50.

End result is higher prices for American consumers more profit for producers.

Not gonna happen.

Plenty of refinery capacity on the east coast. Big oil intends to maximize profits, not reduce prices.

If the discussion ever veers to matters regarding public defenders, your input / opinion might become relevant.

Regarding higher prices for American consumers.....Although unlikely, even if every drop of oil produced is shipped to China, the end result would still be lower fuel cost.

Yes Pizza Face, the oil companies are chomping at the bit to get that oil down to the gulf so they can sell it locally rather than export it at higher prices.

Do some reading dude.
