    Soooo…. your argument is that the artist is as likely addicted to oil as everyone else? That only proves his point.

    Our “world” RUNS ON OIL! get over it. You think that if you make it hard enough to get, people will all jump on mass transit? really? Somebody has a healthy ego……….

    He’s a loony lefty from California, so he probably DOES use only bicycles and public transportation and has no need of either home heating or air conditioning.

    Is the argument about oil dependency, or the pipeline itself? They both have their problems and pitfalls. Most everyone who addresses dependency speaks of reducing, not eliminating our dependency. We simply must develop alternatives. Coal is another dependency we have to start reducing. I am addicted to hot water, electric appliances, a car, a computer… as are we all. It wouldn’t bother me to have a solar water heater or a computer powered by a wind source. Yeah, I know wind generators have problems as well. I’d like to jump ahead about a thousand years, see what we have accomplished in energy generation and use. Futurama, anyone?

    Good points , but if we can find a cleaner alternative we should. So long as we walk down the hill instead of leaping off the cliff ! Until we reach the our long term goal providing for our own needs instead of being oil dependent only makes sense.

    We could be nearly free of it if we had started in the 1970’s. Now the worse stuff every, the methamphetamine of the petrochemical world is being mined.

    Yes to pollute and change the world into a living hell. Oh yes you deity works in nefarious ways.

    Well since Obama is both a Con. And Capitalist he sides with the Keystone which will bring us only woe and terrible pollution.

    It is about oil dependency that brings us this pipe full of toxins many times worse than sweet crude. This is desperation. And we won’t even get any of it, until it leaks out, it will be sent over seas.

    We could get off of 90% if we spent more time on energy efficiency and less on a global war we have been working on since 1980.

    There are ways around petrochemicals. Also the GHG generation will make things that much harder a time goes on. Petrochemicals are so 19th century. Time to move away into a cleaner future.

    Yes, people are addicted to energy sources. Crazy concept, I know.

    The cons won’t let us off petrochemicals until the last drop is gone. Then they’ll blame us for not being prepared with another fuel.
    Yes, oil is in a lot of plastics and other things. That’s one reason we shouldn’t burn all of it in a SUV going to the convenience store for a Big Gulp.

    And the Big Gulp comes in a plastic cup made from oil.

    Or, here’s a thought, instead of creating ways to exploit dirtier and more expensive carbon energy sources, we could instead put that money into developing alternatives – so that we have not only cleaner energy sources, but also so that we have them before every single drop of oil is squeezed out of the earth and the situation becomes 10x as expensive as it is now.


    Thinking that the only alternative to oil is living in a “3rd world country” is actually the best way to use up all the oil and condemn us all to that living standard because we haven’t developed something else.

    Think about it.

    @Ionizer

    Not funding an incredibly dirty source of petrochemicals, most of which will be exported after refining to Asia, =/= “stifling current sources”, though.

    We HAVE enough current sources for current demand, believe it or not. What this is doing is simply opening up another revenue stream for the petrochemical companies based on a carbon model. We should not be subsidizing this. We should be putting this money, which you should note is coming from our tax revenue via the government, into development of cleaner sources, not opening up new dirtier sources.
