    right now, where we get the oil has zero affect on prices or our use of it. I've yet to hear anyone suggest that not building the pipeline will somehow cause Americans to burn less.

    I'm not at all sure what you don't want to give up, but if it's burning petrol we will have to if we want to reduce CO2.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      It's the demand side where all the action is.  Restricting supply only matters if it drives up prices.
