    as it is religion.

    Part of the reason that denialists cling to hard to this is due to their religion, even when faced with irrefutable disasterous--right in their front yard-proof.

    In the Buckle(s) of the Bible Belt, claiming kinship with environmentalist is like admitting that one dabbles in Satanism.

      sticker I recently saw: God is in control.

      If that's the case, God is truly in need of a vacation and re-training.

      •  Science (0+ / 0-)

        No, anti-XL pipeline is science and self preservation.

        The Koch brothers, polluted/depleted aquifer, and dirty fuel are real.

        Your glib denial is the rigid ideology here.

      •  Bullshit. You know better than that (0+ / 0-)

        The people do not have confidence in an underregulated system that cannot ensure a) that such pipelines receive appropriate maintenance and inspections and b) that the legal system will be able to force these companies to perform a cleanup after the pipe breaks, which it will, and c) that it is even possible to remove all the pollutants from the environment in an attempt to clean after a spill.

        And that does not even address the carbon footprint of focusing on OIL at the expense of cleaner, alternative energies, urban planning, and mass transit.

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
