  •  completely legitimate question, not trolling (11+ / 0-)

    I was speaking to a friend who is a very well-known climate science journalist and a friend who works as a science adviser to the state department, and both agreed -- the points yoshimi is making are 100% valid, and they both strongly feel that environmental groups are fighting the wrong battle here. this oil WILL be refined, and it WILL be used. the only question is where it will be shipped and refined, and that is all that is at play in the keystone debate. stopping the pipeline in no way stops the extractions and consumption of the alberta oil sands, and has nothing to do with the real fight, which is the need to find cleaner fuels.

    why on earth would making this very valid point be considered trolling?
