Both. It's economically good and environmentally bad. I live near the Canadian oil sands and it'd be a HUGE economic benefit here. But uh, they basically want to build it on the dessicated corpses of dead wildlife. So they need to sort that **** out.
Cheaper gas. 250,000 new jobs, vs Potential environmental disaster. Personally I'm willing to take the risk.
Anything to increase oil flow through America is good.
The potential bad aspect of it includes sabotage, terrorist attack, or mucho spillage. Personally, I believe the potential positives outweigh the potential negatives.
it's bad if they're forcing people who own the land to put it on THEIR land they own and they don't want it on their land.
We need to invest in alternatives to oil
Good comeback but won't this pipeline cost money to?
I had no idea that green companies were going broke
A wiser investment would be hydrogen energy development.
Do you want more oil and more money or less money and less oil?
That's ignoring all the jobs that will be created to build the damn thing.
I'm for anything that creates jobs at this point. Throughout history higher wages, lots of workers, and better safety nets built entire economies. Look at America, Until the Anti union dix got power and influence the middle class was exploding in wealth, birth rate, and savings. Is it any wonder that when a state passes right to work legislation it leads to lower wages, less benefits, and worse conditions?
