You have to admit when Obama gets that mischievous look on his face -it’s downright funny!Even when the Three Amigo’s met at the White House there was a lot of scoping going on between President Obama, PM Harper and President Calderon.
In this picture Obama is looking at the Canadian Prime Minister with that swagger look like I got a file in the cake!!
Harper is looking down at his every expanding belly button in despair trying to sell the Keystone Pipeline as vital to the conservative party’s big oil contributors.
Then, looking past Pres. Obama is President Calderone eyeballing Obama and thinking:
“Did he really say that?“
PM Harper is miffed at Obama for not approving the entire Keystone pipeline which is tied to the Alberta Tar Sands project, the most expensive way to produce oil in the world.
Harper has had difficulty trying to sell Tar Sands even to Canadians!!
The European Union grades Canadian Tar Sands the most polluting, destructive oil production known and may effectively ban it for sale.
The oil that is extracted from Tar Sands is very poor quality oil, and requires the destruction of five perishable natural resources to make it. The production of tar sands requires:
1) Natural gas in great quantities
2) Lots of water
3) The pollution of the air
4) The destruction of 114,000 square miles of trees
5) The destruction of large areas of land which will look like the moon after tar sands is extracted -large craters left with no vegetation possible or reclamation by the oil companies.
The major oil production investor is Trans Canada which has a long history of violations both in repairs of pipelines, maintenance of pipelines and many oil spills.
Trans Canada has already purchased the steel from India to make the pipeline and it is of a low grade steel that is known to corrode but they bought it cheaply.
Trans Canada knows that Tar Sands oil is very corrosive and will wear down the inside of the cheap India steel very quickly. What awaits those who live along a 1,500 mile pipeline is the constant leaks that will result from this inconceivable and misguided plan called Keystone XL Pipeline.
The oil industry of both countries is tied at the hip with corporate money and the Koch Brothers who are invested heavily into this project.
Harper can’t find any takers on Low Quality _Expensive Tar Sand Oil
