The Keystone XL Pipeline Veto

I discuss the Keystone XL pipeline veto by President Obama, relay facts regarding the environmental argument, how MIT Professor of Energy Economics Chris Knittel says it will actually reduce carbon emissions, rail versus pipeline safety according to the Washington Post, economic impact of refining in the United States since we don’t allow export of crude oil, and the money behind this fight in the form of rail companies (Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway bought the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad) versus pipeline companies.

One thought on “The Keystone XL Pipeline Veto

  1. Well stated Ethan. The BN goes through here with many cars daily and it would be great to have the oil in a pipe. Warren is just being repayed for donations. Period.
    PS. He also owns Edina Realty and I’m still selling homes.
