  •  what kind of an argument is that? (6+ / 0-)

    The same way one could argue "let´s not save on any of our CO2 emissions since if we dont emit it, someone else will". The same way one could argue "lets build motorways instead of railway lines and it has no bearing on climate since that gasoline is going to be burnt one way or the other". I say! "Lets not stop smoking; we´ll die anyways and if not, we´ll get cancer anyways through our neighbours smoke". That is how public policy is argued in the US?

    "the department has 90 days to determine whether the project is in the national interest". Exactly. Not to decide if or of not that oil will be burnt. This is a bad joke or what.
