China to get tar sands oil?

Even the Washington Post understands that Keystone XL opponents accomplished nothing for the environment.

AFP reports,

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday that he was looking at exporting more oil to China after the United States delayed a decision on a controversial pipeline.

President Barack Obama’s administration last week put off a decision on Keystone XL project after a major protest campaign by environmentalists, who say the pipeline would be prone to accidents and worsen climate change.

The conservative Canadian leader, taking part in a summit in Hawaii hosted by Obama said the pipeline decision had produced “extremely negative reactions” and that he discussed oil exports with Chinese President Hu Jintao.

“This does underscore the necessity of Canada making sure that we are able to access Asian markets for our energy products,” Harper told reporters. “I indicated that yesterday (Saturday) to President Hu of China.”

  1. I am sure the Chinese will be willing to buy ALL the Canadian oil they can get. The current adminitstration continues to make decisions destroying the American economy based on bad and or no science at all. The really disturbing part is that most Americans are so stupid that they think that the GREEN crap actually works.

  2. Apparently the strategy is to drive the American economy into the dirt so that 80% of us are in need of welfare. At that point we become the USSA run by the oligarchal socialists much like the old USSR.

    All that it will take to create a true American Spring is to put an American in the White House and free the energy industry from carrots and sticks. An energy renaissance will fire an economic one. So mote it be! as Hollywood used to say.
