I told you about this back in November and now Canada's Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has set up a meeting in China next month to discuss selling them the oil that Barry, at the urging of the Environazis, refused when he put the kibosh on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline extension from Canada to Texas.
As you know, Canada is oil rich because of the Alberta oil sands and wants to sell us their excess. This oil from Canada, along with America's own oil sands, the oil in the Gulf of Mexico and that in Alaska's ANWR would make the US almost entirely energy independent until other alternative forms of energy can be made more cost efficient. Unfortunately the Environazis are against all this, making us dependent on oil from the Middle East and elsewhere.
Barry is always yapping that we need more jobs; well here are thousands of shovel-ready, albeit temporary, jobs for the taking. Time to put his money where his mouth is.
This is just another prime example of why we need to rid ourselves of the progressive in the White House who has done nothing but pander to the environmental leftists who want to push us back to a time when we lived in communal mud huts and and ate a vegetarian diet.
Canada is now looking to Asian countries to market its abundance of oil, natural gas and minerals as plans to build the proposed Keystone XL pipeline have stalled with the U.S. administration.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper will travel to China next month to discuss selling Canada's bounty to the rapidly growing nation.
The preferred initial plan was to build the $7 billion Keystone pipeline to deliver Alberta's oilsands crude to refineries in Texas on the Gulf of Mexico.
Harper reasoned that the U.S. government would prefer to deal with a friendly neighbor to help meet its energy needs while creating thousands of jobs.
With widespread opposition by U.S. environmentalists, the Obama administration has delayed its decision on whether to approve the project proposed by energy giant TransCanada Pipelines.
