    If you think that President Biden and Climate Chief Kerry have saved the planet consider this:
    The Keystone Pipeline would be 2,147 miles long and would supply 830,000 barrels of oil per day.
    A tanker truck can carry 190 barrels of oil. It would take 4,368 trucks per day just to haul that amount of oil.
    It would take 3 days to cover the 2,147 miles.
    An additional 4,368 trucks would start the trip the second day and another 4,368 trucks would start the trip the second day, and another 4,368 trucks would start the trip on the third day.
    Needless to say, all these trucks will be returning empty.
    Therefore, it would take 26,208 trucks per day to haul what the pipeline could carry in one day.
    If the trucks could gel 6 MPG, it would take 157,248 gallons of diesel per day to carry the oil... at $3 per gallon, just the diesel cost would be $471,744.00 per day, in addition to the drivers' salaries, and other costs.
    Ok, we can ship it by train,, they haul a lot more... Each train tanker holds on the avg. 821 barrels of oil... so it would take over 1,010 cars to haul the oil., and the most tankers a train can have is over 100 cars and can only run 50 MPH..
    So, it would take a little over 10 trains to travel 900 miles a day.,
    So, 2 1/2 days by train and another 24 hours to unload the train.
    So, it would take almost 40 trains going south from Canada, fully loaded with oil, and 40 more trains running back north empty and in the meantime, you will be needing that many trains in Canada to be loading while the empty trains are headed back.
    So, it would take 120 trains with 100 tankers each to haul the oil..
    A tanker ship coming from Arabia would take 27+ days and hauls 2 million barrels, some larger... well I don't even want to get into the ships.
    So, tell me again, how completing the Keystone Pipeline would destroy the planet.
    So, now 70,000 good-paying jobs lost.
    More crowded highways and/or more trains as well as taking away the USA being energy independent and actually exporting oil.
    Now we may be buying from the same nations that supported and/or sponsored the 911 attacks.
    Plus how much carbon and soot will come out of all these trucks and trains pulling this oil, while ZERO
    emissions from the pipeline? Is this Liberal logic? Zero logic. Zero science.
    And yes that Giant Sucking Sound on the Potomac is inhabited by swamp creatures that do not recognize the hard-working Americans.
    Climate Chief flies in a private luxury jet while telling unemployed very skilled workers to take low paying jobs building solar panels.

    They know it was a good plan, it just wasn’t their idea, so they shut it down. Like I’ve said before, most of them know there was election fraud and some will even admit it, but as long as they got their guy in office, that’s all that matters.

    Liberal stupidity is literally a threat to National security.
  5. This wasn’t about commonsense or saving the environment, it was about punishing people and putting a notch in his belt. Nothing more.

    Redistribution of wealth, one of Obama biggest sayings. Destroy the America first title. We can't be #1 with all those good paying jobs.

    Exactly right; if 99% of conservatives are for something then the Biden gang is 110% against it in order to appease one faction of their base, but no matter what, they find a round about way in achieving wealth.

  10. Time to split up the country into a collection of independent nations who trade and defend each other.

    It was also about repaying the Democrat supporters and their enterprises like Warren Buffet and his Railroad and the Chinese Government and their "Green Energy" projects here in the US and on and on and on ..... :(

    Nice thought out educational post, modern Diesel engines suck more fuel than there older models, 99 Cummins gets 22 mpg, 21 Cummins 8 if your lucky, burn more fuel really saves the environment, I’m all about trying to save the world but the leadership is going ass backwards about it, idk

    That Muppet looking kerry makes a statement last week, we got 9 years to turn this climate change agenda around. Get outta here, he can no more make that claim than someone predicting what day Jesus comes back. Cutting fossil fuel jobs to zero,paying illegals to make solar panels while he jets across the world is there agenda.
