Nonsequitur: Mad Canadians
April 19, 2014
You know you are having problems with your foreign policy and energy policy when you make the Canadians angry.
President Obama has announced ANOTHER delay in the Keystone Pipeline. As the Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer points out, the pipeline is CLEANER and SAFER than methods of delivery of oil from Canada currently in use, using trucks and rail. That’s right, the Keystone Pipeline will have LESS carbon emissions than what we are already doing. AND it creates jobs for Americans and Canadians.
The Keystone Pipeline is good for energy, good for the environment, good for jobs and good for international relations. It just not good for President Obama’s political friends.
