    As described in the diary.  Eliminating a pipeline won't make them leave trillions of dollars in the ground.  Only a reduction in demand will do that.

      This is the beginning, not the end.  There will be more battle to fight to make sure that this oil stays in the ground, but you're ready to give up already because this isn't the only fight.

      Only a reduction in demand will do that.
      Unless you have a magic bullet to deal with demand then dealing with supply is the only option we've got.  You and others opposed to the plan to stop the pipeline say there's more important things to focus on, but you never give examples of what those things are and where we can actually win.  We're not getting anything past congress until at least 2016, so what's the "better thing" that we can fight for?  And don't give me the localism crap.  We're doing that too and winning, it simply isn't enough.
