Obama Wants Oil Transported By Rail

President Obama will veto Keystone, because transporting oil by train is much better for the environment.

A train carrying more than 100 tankers of crude oil derailed during a snowstorm in southern West Virginia on Monday, sending at least one tanker into the Kanawha River, igniting at least 14 tankers in all and sparking a house fire, officials said.

Officials evacuated hundreds of families and shut down two water treatment plants threatened by oil seeping into the river. State public safety division spokesman Lawrence Messina told the Associated Press late Monday that fires were still burning nearly nine hours after the accident. The plan was to let the fires on tankers burn themselves out.

  1. Keystone isn’t even a pipeline, it’s only a shortcut to a pipeline that’s already there. Idiocy.

    Obama does all this in order to avoid more global warming. They told us to expect less winter snow and cold for the US.

    Guardian – 17 February 2015
    Record-breaking cold gripped the eastern United States while an icy winter storm crippled the nation’s central states and then moved into the mid-Atlantic, dumping snow and forcing federal offices in Washington DC to close on Tuesday.

    Heavy snowfall and ice moving eastward from the Southern Plains pounded……….”

    Killing keystone will only make Warren Buffet richer because all that oil will have to be transported on his railroad lines…

    Skeeter does not want to miss out on the generous Buffet laid out before him.

    Oh, yes! Very generous “Buffet”! Home from golfing in sunny California, our president encounters the unthinkable in this warming world! Still snowing and another devastating derailment! Surprise? Not! Tell the Bostonians about global warming! Refer them to this website. I did refer it to young Jacoby at the Boston Globe. I do hope he still has a job after the really intelligent article he wrote last week about some of these issues.
    If the Keystone pipeline is vetoed, I hope there are riots in the streets and immediate impeachment proceedings.
    I am so angry at the unconscionable waste of borrowed! money on renewables –neither reliable nor affordable and disaster for power delivery. Do check out the news from Germany and the other Euro countries this winter when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow. Man’s inhumanity to his own kind just never quits. I often think of the song line, “Stop the world; I want to get off!.”! Of course, half of the pipeline already exists from Okla. to the gulf coast. We already bring the oil from Canada on Mr. Buffet’s train sets. It helps to be a close friend of the POTUS.
    How often (never!) do we hear/read that we in the U.S.now produce 70% of our own oil? Of the remainder, most comes from Canada and other places in the Americas like Mexico and Venezuela. Only about 9% ,now, is imported from the Middle East. I again refer all of the highly intelligent readers/ commenters here to get the new book, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels by Alex Epstein.
    Sorry for the rant! I could have gone on! : ) I just get so angry.

    Buffet Industries is a piece of work.
    Buy rail company at bottom of panic market (this was smart)
    Put middle son Howard in management of GSI (Grain Bin Manufacturer)
    Buy President
    Block pipeline
    Stuff rail assets with oil so no grain can move
    Sell farmer grain bin.

  7. KTM says:

    This is why the EPA’s own assessment found that Keystone would lead to lower carbon emissions than loading the oil onto trucks or trains and driving it across the country.

    There is no legitimate opposition to this pipeline, period. If we don’t take the oil and refine it here in the US, it will go overseas to dirtier refineries in China. We can’t stop it from being used, we don’t own it and other countries are happy to use it. But we can transport it and refine it in the most environmentally responsible way if the eco-luddites would stop hobbling our efforts to do the right thing.

    • Gail Combs says:

      The eco-luddites do not care. Their goal has always been to cripple and destroy the USA and nothing less.

      Remember Bush Sr and Clinton pushed for the World Trade Organization. It was Clinton that convinced Congress to ratifiy it and then campaigned to get China admitted. It was Clinton that gave China most favored nation trade status. It was Clinton that gave China our technology secrets including military technology. Chasing the Dragon: Clinton’s China Policy The resul of Clinton’s economic policies was the loss of millions of US high paying manufacuring jobs. Clinton also signed the five banking laws that resulted in the husing collapse, massive foreclosures and the transfer of taxpayer moneys to the banks. Banking Laws and other info

      Pascal Lamy was two time Director-General of the WTO and makes it clear exactly where the elite plan to take the USA.
      THE GLOBALIST Pascal Lamy: Whither Globalization?

      In the same way, climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared.….

      Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? ….
      The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed. Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

      All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty

      In other words FDR sold out the USA back in the thirties.

      “We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religions destroy morals, and our banks destroy the economy” –Chris Hedges Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist.

    I agree, but suspect the destruction planned is much greater. I don’t think they intend any of the large countries to survive. Where does it end?

    As you might know the AGW scam is a Rothschild project. That extended family is the oligarch of oligarchs. One interesting hypothesis of where it is going:


    I’d be happy to hear others.
