Just read along. In a blatantly obvious move to pander to their insane green constituents, the Obama Administration has yet again made a decision to prevent us from getting more resources to keep energy prices from going higher. Here’s the meat of the issue
The Obama administration said Friday that a massive pipeline carrying oil across much of the United States must remain shut down until federal regulators are satisfied that it can operate without future leaks.
TransCanada’s Keystone pipeline leaked twice last month, fueling opposition to a pending expansion of the project, which is undergoing a wide-ranging federal review.
Let’s also prevent people from driving cars, riding trains, or flying planes, just to name a few, until we can make sure there are not going to be future accidents in any of these endeavors as well! It’s not as if giving us details of these leaks would have helped us understand the problem either, huh. What caused them? How big were they? How fast were they repaired? Is it again much ado about nothing or just the Obamanauts using this as an excuse to yet again stifle our energy resources?
And what caused these leaks is very important to me? I wouldn’t be surprised it was done by some environmentalist wacco that wanted just this result. These people are not just insane, they are evil. They pull stunts like this constantly and the media never reports on them.
The Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) issued a “corrective action order” Friday informing TransCanada that it must take a series of steps before resuming normal operations at the pipeline, which runs from Canada to Oklahoma.
How much you want to bet that these “corrective actions” are flat out insane if not outright impossible, and that what we have here is simply an attempt to shut this down for as long as possible? And don’t argue with me that the Obama Administration would have to be insane to do yet another thing that hurts the economy so close to an election. They care little about the economy, jobs, or the people that won’t vote for them anyway. This is flat out a political payment to their green constitutency.
“After evaluating the foregoing preliminary findings of fact, I find that the continued operation of the pipeline without corrective measures would be hazardous to life, property and the environment,” Jeffrey Wiese, PHMSA’s associate administrator for pipeline safety, said in the order.
PHMSA is mandating that TransCanada provide a detailed “restart plan,” conduct “mechanical and metallurgical” testing, and analyze the pipeline components that failed
Why no details of what went so “horribly” wrong from this fella? I for one would love to know whose “life” and “property” was put in danger by a pipe that supposedly runs in the middle of nowhere. Methinks nobody was in danger of losing life or property, and that this was all about the third part of this moron’s statement, “the environment”, and then, not in the sense that these people worried about the environment, but about the insane morons that worship Gaia and their votes.
These green retards don’t want Canadians going after shale oil, of which there is so much in Canada that it makes the Saudi reserves look like a small piddle, because access to this oil would undermine their efforts to kill the sue of oil completely. And since the Canadian government isn’t insane enough to cut its economic jugular by ending this lucrative, job creating enterprise, they are doing it by preventing them access to the consumers. Want proof?
In addition, the order instructs TransCanada to conduct a review of its entire pipeline system within 60 days, among other things.
The order comes at a politically sensitive time for TransCanada. The company is seeking federal approval to expand its Keystone pipeline to carry Canadian oil sands from Alberta to Texas.
Texas! The Keynesians and Gaia worshippers are basically hoping to stop delivery to the consumers in Texas. It’s a double victory if they pull it off. First they stop the Canadians from getting the shale oil. Then one could even argue that they might be inclined to think they scored a win because of how they impact the Texas economy. Would you be surprised to find out that these idiots did something like this so they could then make the shitholes the left has run into the ground – like California or Michigan – more palatable? I certainly wouldn’t after these last 3 years.
In this horrible economy the left is putting agenda and their Gaia religion in front of jobs and access to energy yet again. I am sure that when job numbers again show negative or negligible growth, and energy prices go up, that they will be baffled at it and claim it is all unexpected.
