Keystone Pipeline = 35 Full Time Jobs and NO Increase in Capacity!

Tar Sand Sad

If approved, the new Keystone would have the same 36-inch diameter — and the same capacity of 830,000 barrels per day — as the existing segments. That means refineries in Texas and along the Gulf Coast would have at their disposal about the same volume of crude oil to refine after Keystone is built as they do now. TransCanada is expected to spend $3.3 billion building the U.S. portion of the pipeline. – Dallas News

In short… the myths of ever expanding economies and limitless growth are just that myths. It doesn’t matter where you borrow your resources to fuel growth the simple fact is we WILL be running out of most of the resources that have powered our global economy quite possibly in our lifetime.

The current financial crisis will be a lot MORE devastating then we are being lead to believe. The simple fact is… unrelenting debt to power an unrealistic global economy will be our ultimate demise.

You can’t borrow against a future that has already been spent.

But the volume turned out to be much closer to that figure than the 42,000 gallons per day that BP first estimated. Weeks later that was revised to 210,000 gallons. Now, an estimated 500,000 to 1 million gallons of crude is believed to be leaking daily.

It has yet to announce plans to drill in the region but shortly before the U.S. disaster, BP and other oil companies urged Canadian regulators to drop a requirement stipulating that companies operating in the Arctic had to drill relief wells in the same season as the primary well.
