We are being set up. The administration is worming it’s way into giving it’s blessing to the pipeline. Obama doesn’t have the *?%& to did it himself so he’s using the State Department to make the announcement. And they are using some bogus report as cover:
The State Department has just released its 2,000-page draft environmental review of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, down to Steele City, Nebraska and on to the Gulf of Mexico.
The big takeaway: The State Department concluded that either blocking or approving the Keystone XL pipeline would have a small impact on overall greenhouse-gas emissions and future tar-sands expansions. That’s because, in its view, most of Alberta’s oil will find a way to get to the market anyway — if not by pipeline, then by rail.
And some opponents of the pipeline see the writing on the wall:
On Friday afternoon, the State Department released a draft of its much-anticipated new analysis of the environmental impact of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Although the report makes no firm statement one way or the other about whether the controversial pipeline from Canada to Texas should be approved, some of its conclusions have enviros worried that a greenlight is inevitable.
Time to take to the streets again
