    Koch Brothers Positioned To Be Big Winners If Keystone XL Pipeline Is Approved

    "The Koch brothers are architects of the dirty energy strategy, both in Washington and through their commercial interests," Jeremy Symons of the Reston, Va.-based National Wildlife Federation said. "It wouldn't make any sense at all for the president to give this pipeline project the thumbs up and undermine his own clean energy efforts."
    ..
    That would send at least an additional $2 billion from American consumers to Canadian and multinational oil interests, despite the increase in supply. Given its deep involvement in the Canadian petroleum industry, the Koch brothers' operation stands to snare some of the windfall.

      And that link is a factually poor article. It ignores the big picture.

      Venezuelan oil stays in PADD III, Texas, for refining.

      Canada Syncrude sells its light crude for $97.50, $1.50 more than WTI..... the writer leaves that out.
