    You certainly CAN phase out petroleum as our primary energy source, and that's coming sooner or later. Later would be very bad for the long-term health of this planet.

    A few refinery jobs in Texas are not worth the massive environmental risks of tar sands oil all over the USA and the destruction of boreal landscape in Canada. And again you pitch a strawman: NO, we don't save pollution by having it delivered to the Gulf Coast because if not here it would be refined in Alberta or British Columbia, sparing miles upon miles of landscapes in the process.

    You worried about miles and miles of landscape and you are for low btu output and subsidized wind energy?

    Lol what kind of moron are you? If Canada could refine it all why would they want to pipe it down to us? I mean the single state of Louisiana has more refineries than the entire country of Canada. Also, not all crude is the same. They don’t have true capacity and the would still have to ship/rail the final products out.

    You are a prime example of why having liberals in charge always leads to failure. There is no data that supports pipelines are more dangerous than rail and ships.


    Also, petroleum is not even close to our primary energy source. It’s about 1/3rd.


    Stop talking about things you don’t know about.

    I'm sensing a lot of negative energy. You need to set that down like a sack of potatoes.

    Surely we can all agree with Elon: “In general, I believe government should rarely impose its will upon the people, and, when doing so, should aspire to maximize their cumulative happiness."

    Because the FINISHED PRODUCT becomes closer to their intended customers, exploiting AMERICAN landscapes in the process. DUH. You really aren't too bright, are you? Let Canada refine its own toxic sludge.

    Life expectancy when 80% of Americans atttended church regularly: 39.4 years
    Life expectancy now when 18% of Americans atttend church regularly: 78.9

    Clearly, church is fatal and staying away is the key to a longer life.

    Lefty elites don't see that as a plus. Elites typically lived into their 70s or 80s hundreds of years ago. They don't really want the masses living beyond their productive years. That's why they invented ding dongs, twinkies, and crack. Yet still, Walmart shoppers are everywhere now, even Bora Bora. That's why the new world order is being rammed down the world's throat . Their key will be to subjugate the American middle class. (You'll know that's been accomplished when national "vaccine" mandates for covid becomes law).
