TransCanada to reapply for Keystone pipeline

5 posts in this topic

The company also unveiled a new route for the pipeline through Nebraska.

President Obama, environmentalists and many Nebraskans — including the state’s Republican governor, Dave Heineman — had raised concerns that the project’s original route could imperil Nebraska’s ecologically sensitive Sandhills region, as well as the Ogallala aquifer, a major source of drinking water for state residents.

The new route would steer clear of the Sandhills region, although it still runs over parts of the Ogallala aquifer. Environmentalists say that Nebraska officials have defined the Sandhills region too narrowly and that the revised route will traverse the Sandhills in Nebraska’s northern Holt County.

The Keystone pipeline project, a point of contention between environmentalists and some labor unions, has divided the Democratic base. It has unified Republicans behind what they contend is a critical source of energy for the United States. Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, along with GOP congressional leaders, have called on Obama to approve the pipeline.

The State Department has jurisdiction over the pipeline permit because the project crosses an international border. ... (Snip) ...

But the pipeline provides NO energy for the US. It is sold abroad. Republicans just making up stuff again...

It will, however, provide thousands of new jobs. As our resident champion of the middle class, I'm surprised you're not in favor of it.

It will provide a thousand jobs as long as it is build, which is a question of a few months and then it will make oil companies able to keep a few hundred jobs. The risk is that a few thousand are without a job as soon as the first accident happens and the stuff gets into a river. And it keeps the sludge in the US while taking the energy somewhere else. If the thingy would be such a good investment the Canadians would build their own refinery and sell the finished product themselves.

No they admitted it will provide "hundreds" of new jobs and a few "temporary" jobs. The effect on jobs will be so small as to be microscopic. The pipeline has NOTHING to do with jobs.
