Keystone Pipeline vetoed

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015...N0LS2FH20150224

Quote:
President Barack Obama on Tuesday, as promised, swiftly vetoed a Republican bill approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline, leaving the long-debated project in limbo for another indefinite period.

The U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, after receiving Obama's veto message, immediately countered by announcing the Republican-led chamber would attempt to override it by March 3.

That is unlikely. Despite their majority, Republicans are four votes short of being able to overturn Obama's veto.

They have vowed to attach language approving the pipeline to a spending bill or other legislation later in the year that the president would find difficult to veto.

The TransCanada Corp pipeline would carry 830,000 barrels a day of mostly Canadian oil sands crude to Nebraska en route to refineries and ports along the U.S. Gulf. It has been pending for more than six years.


Discuss.

My family is actually in oil. These really low prices have made my dad have to cut back a little bit because there just isn't much coming in. Their business is in a small town and can get hit by low oil prices easily. That being said, he didn't really get why this was such a big deal. That's if I remember what he said correctly. He basically said that it was Canadian oil getting shipped to the gulf to be sold. That doesn't mean the US would get any of it. I think we'd help process it but that's it. There would be a lot of construction jobs made from it but our infrastructure isn't that good right now and could make just as many jobs, seems like.

I've been getting into the stock market recently and this would be a prime time to buy into the Canadian Oil Sands stock. It's relatively cheap right now and, whether you'd want to admit it or not, eventually the oil sands will be harvested really hard and fast. Buy it cheap now, wait on it for a few years and it'll shoot up 500%. Maybe more.

But, it's kind of shitty to be giving these people money, so idk. It'll make you money for sure, but the moral ethics are there to consider.

Dumb. Moving it by ship is more dangerous to the environment, and if the investors can put up the money for it and can get landowner permission without eminent domain having to be used, build the damn thing.

This is a dumb attitude and a dumb answer. Also, probably pretty typical.

How about we start actually using and putting money into alternative and renewable resources and ship all the oil to mars when we go there cause that place is ruined anyway.

disclaimer: oil money has shaped me so much may as well have oil running thru my veins

i think its stupid because shit like this just means the inevitable flow of oil will flow in a manner that will inevitably be more harmful to the environment. if you think this is going to stop the flow of oil you are deluded. its protectionist policy not environmental policy.

I honestly don't know enough about to make an informed decision. Never bothered to read up much on the pipeline, but it's not like not building will make the demand for oil go down.

I'll just keep waiting for Elon Musk to save us all.

I honestly don't know enough about this to comment.

I do know some First Nations didn't want this running through their land so I oppose any plans to do that. >_>
