CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

The KXL passes over the Ogalalla aquifer that waters the crops that feeds our country and part of the world...It passes over more than 2000 contributory rivers , streams and creeks...

is it really worth the risk??...I can live without a lot of things but clean water isn't one of them!!...

, i think you will agree that all lands with the exception of indian reservations and federal lands are contingent upon the payment of taxes or upon the needs of the government whether local, state or federal. in many respects opposition is correct that the oil will not be used exclusively for north americans and it will not necessarily drive down the costs to consumers. there is a level at which it becomes impratical to even bother to pump it or refine it. if we can get over the idea of American Protectionism for many commodities that we produce, we will then have a shot at insuring that we have sufficient resources in which to supply our needs and hopefully within most peoples budgets. remember the cost is the cost and the price is the price. it is all relative.

NasCarNut..protecting the Ogallala Aquifer is an important concern. we would be remiss not to mention not only the current contamination problems but also the continuation of conatminants irrespective of whether the pipeline is built, scuttled or even dismantled. the aquafier is currently being assalted by above. the roughly 174,000 square mile area of crop and rangeland seems to be the culprit of th current contamination. just imagine for a moment the amount of natural and artificial fertilizers along with the untold amount of pesticides that are applied to the "bread basket" of america. the nitrates as well as the enormous amounts of animal waste combine to form a powerful toxic cocktail. minimalizing contamination while still providing for the needs of our citizens is a delicate balance that will not be easily achieved. there are just too many interests at play and the task of pleasing everyone will prove to be daunting. concerning the generational "holding of land&q

Claim: $7 billion will be spent of the Pipe line.

Fact: Actually spending in the US: $3 billion. The rest goes to Canada.

Claim: 20,000 jobs will created in manufacturing.

Fact: All the steel manufactured for the pipeline will be manufactured in Asia. Steel fabrication are the only manufacturing jobs that could created by the project.

Fact: Even the number of temporary jobs has been exaggerated. According to analysis by Cornell University only about 500 to 1,400 local TEMPORARY jobs. Another 2,500-4,650 temporary jobs would be created IN CANADA:

Montana = 257 South Dakota = 333 Nebraska = 248 Kansas = 18 Oklahoma = 113 Texas = 470

Claim: 119,000 jobs would be created 

Fact: The current CEO of Transcanda Russ Girling, admitted that the number of jobs create by the pipeline will be 50 - Nov 16, 2014, ABC's "This Week" program

"Yes, the actual operating jobs will be about 50."

The poll question is misleading... ask the question - Do you support a Canadian Oil company transporting oil across America to be refined and sold to every other country in the world EXCEPT America??... See how many people favor that...

It's passing right through America's bread basket, through lands that have been held by families for generations. Their children will be left with nothing but a wasteland if this oil gets into the rivers lakes and aquifers.

The pipeline is really pumping is bitumen, the most lowest grade, most toxic form of crude. It has the consistency of peanut butter. Chemicals and solvents must be added to it plus it must be heated just to get it to pump. It takes 2000 lbs of pressure to push it through that pipe. When it gets to it's destination, those chemicals and solvents must then be removed creating even more toxic waste.

Oblabla will veto the bill. Question is will there be enough votes to override?

Washington (CNN)—A majority of Americans favor the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline -- a result that could give Republicans a boost as they move toward a showdown with President Barack Obama over the project -- a CNN/ORC poll has found.

The 1,179-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline is backed by 57% of the 1,011 Americans surveyed on Dec. 18-21. Just 28% oppose it, while 15% say they are unsure.

WHY is Obama obstructing progress that the vast marjority of Americans want??

NOTE; CNN poll NOT FOX

Long-time Democratic Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber on Friday announced his resignation amid allegations his fiancée used her relationship with him to enrich herself. The influence-peddling allegations involving his fiancée were a result of her work as a green-energy consultant.

Secretary of State Kate Brown, a Democrat like Kitzhaber, was expected to assume the office and become the first openly bisexual governor in the country.(can't make this stuff up)

Sleeping with the power to get grants for Solar Power. LOL
