    Yep... and crude oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico is minuscule compared to the volume of oil produced and the volume of oil leaking into the Gulf from natural seeps.

      US refiners need about 17 million barely per day to meet the demand for refined products. US crude production is around 10 million barrels per day (including NGL). The more Canadian crude they can import, the less they have to import from places like Saudi Arabia.

      There is no scientific, economic, public safety or national security reason for refusing to approve the KXL. The use of the veto in such an arbitrary and capricious manner is by its very nature dictatorial.

      Maobama is blocking KXL for the same reason he is trying to cripple TAPS and retarding exploration and drilling activities on Federal lands and waters... Gorebal Warming.
      US crude for the most part can not be exported. Are you saying Canadian companies can not export Canadian crude through the US?

      As US production goes up, it needs to go somewhere.

      “To talk of many things:
      Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
      Of cabbages—and kings—
      And why the sea is boiling hot—
      And whether pigs have wings.”

        The short answer is yes.

        • US production ~ 10 mmbopd
        • US refining capacity ~ 17 mmbopd


        Not sure what the problem is.
