    But the State Department already found that there would be no net gain in emissions -

    The conclusion of the State Department is that if we don't build the pipeline, the oil’s going to get used anyway, and it will be either shipped by train or shipped through another pipeline, perhaps that goes to British Colombia and then is shipped to China. And so their conclusion is, no matter what we do, those emissions are going to be emitted.

    Since Canada is hell bent on mining the stuff, it will be refined and make it to market regardless if the pipeline is built or not - so there is no net increase simply to have it pipelined to Texas.

    If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.
