Daryl Hannah must be seriously wounded

“[T]he draft Supplemental EIS concludes that approval or denial of the proposed Project is unlikely to have a substantial impact on the rate of development in the oil sands, or on the amount of heavy crude oil refined in the Gulf Coast area,” the State Department draft report says, as Think Progress noted.

The report comes to the dismay of environmental activists. “We’re mystified as to how the State Department can acknowledge the negative effects of the Earth’s dirtiest oil on our climate, but at the same time claim that the proposed pipeline will ‘not likely result in significant adverse environmental effects,’” Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in a statement. “Whether this failure was willful or accidental, this report is nothing short of malpractice.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch….. since putting the dunes sagebrush lizard on the endangered species list didn’t work as far as shutting down oil and gas production in the Permian Basin (and consequently a huge chunk of domestic production,) now they’re going for the lesser prairie chicken. If there IS such a beast, we ain’t seen one. :evil:

    Oil is a toxic substance. We’re turning it into inert solids (plastics, asphalt) and harmless gases (H2O & CO2, not only harmless, but both essential for life to exist). They should be thanking us.

    It is liken to the same bs they have said about fracking. There are no hazards to the enviroment with fracking either, just hazards to Teh Wons ambition to keep America dependent.

    Don’t worry irrational enviroNazi’s…he won’t desert you. Nothing in his actions have ever indicated he was willing to make the move that is GOOD FOR AMERICA. Rest assured, if it would benefit hard working Americans, he will walk in the opposite direction. Nothing to see here…move along.
