Kristi Kries about Keystone XL

It seems that Kristi’s Krocodile tears won’t stop;

Gov. Kristi Noem called on South Dakota media outlets to provide more extensive coverage of the fallout from President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the Keystone XL pipeline permit, a project she and many other Republican lawmakers have long supported.

As for the news coverage, when Biden revoked the permit it was all over National & International News and almost every major media source in South Dakota covered it.

As for Kristi’s claims about jobs, you can’t lose jobs that don’t exist to begin with;

We can verify that the claim of thousands of jobs lost is true, however, it can be misleading. A total of 1,000 people are now out of the job and there won’t be another 10,000 hires because the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline was axed by Biden’s order.

However, Biden hopes to create 10 million jobs through his clean energy plan in addition to the 3 million jobs already in place.

This is the main reason Biden killed it, we have to combat global warming by phasing out fossil fuels. And as I have pointed out several times, Americans don’t get one lick of that oil anyway as you can see from this map. It goes straight to the gulf coast to be loaded on tankers to China.

While Kristi may not like our new president, she may want to research what the project really would have done for us if not revoked, NOT A DAMN THING!

All Keystone is, or was, is a conduit through the US to deliver toxic Canadian sand tars oil down to the Gulf, and then off to China. I thought Noem and Trump were tough on China? Plus, the Keystone Pipeline would have only welcomed Chinese hegemony into the Gulf of Mexico and the Eastern Pacific areas.

and now the toxic tar sand oil will travel to the gulf in trucks or trains that will cause far more environmental impact than the pipe. news flash for you, we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels any time soon and $5 a gallon gas will kill the lower and middle class. i’m not exactly sure what you libs want, but nothing ever seems to be enough.

I guess I want to go outside and breathe the air a decade from now.

full of sand tars,

Have you ever heard of economy of scale? Trucking sand tars oil is not economical.

VSG, how much pollution is created using trains to move the sand tars vs no pollution in a pipeline? I’ll wait….

‘By Train VSG’,

Oh, so now you are proving the efficacy of pipelines over trains or trucks, which destroys your initial point?
