speaking of 36 inch pipeline, if Bill and Hill get back in, it's a done deal.

Democrats on TV the last few days have complained that Obama doesn't have a lot of good options. DUH! The fact that Obama has few good options is a direct result of having a pathetic foreign policy for the last five years. The big difference between Nixon/Kissinger and Obama/Clinton-Kerry is that the Nixon team was several moves ahead of the rest of the world while Obama leads from behind. If we were a wealthy country, we could better afford to lend financial aid to Ukraine without further weakening the dollar. We would be able to supply Europe with enough oil and LNG to offset any Russian restrictions. Obama's ridiculous spending and his marching in lockstep with the environmental extremists have prevented those options. Obama's unilateral withdrawal of the Eastern European missile shield, Iran and Syria policies, allowing Iraq and Afghanistan to worsen under his watch and gutting our military all have emboldened Putin.

If the pipeline will warm things up in the east. I say drill until you drop. Make them pry that drill out of your cold, dead hands.

The author points to warm winter weather in Alaska and cold weather in the east as proof of global warming. Next winter, if it's cold in Alaska and warm in the east that will also be proof of global warming. These people wait until weather happens, and than claim it's all a result of global warming. It's always cold someplace and warm someplace else. I hate to be the one to brake that to some folks.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies.

A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by the Russians, a consensus is emerging that will demand the United States and its North American partners “drill, baby, drill” for national security.

Here's your Global Warming Girls: Do scientific papers ever seem like unreadable gibberish to you? Well, sometimes they really are. Some 120 papers published in established scientific journals over the last few years have been found to be frauds, created by nothing more than an automated word generator that puts random, fancy-sounding words together in plausible sentence structures. As a result they have been pulled from the journals that originally published them.

The fake papers are in the fields of computer science and math and have titles such as “Application and Research of Smalltalk Harnessing Based on Game-Theoretic Symmetries”; “An Evaluation of E-Business with Fin”; and “Simulating Flip-Flop Gates Using Peer-to-Peer Methodologies.” The authors of those papers did not respond to requests for comment.

utherjorge- the petition I was referring to was conducted by the Weather Channel in 2008 and had reached 35,000 signatures at the time Obama took office. Awareness of this petition and its growing influence (8,000 of the scientists had Ph.D.'s) was a stick in the eye to the "climate change" crowd. Absolutely no doubt in my mind that this was the reason the Obama administration loaned billions to GE and GE through its NBC subsidiary then bought the Weather Channel and squelched talk of the petition. Any long-time viewer of the Weather Channel will recall that The Weather Channel has been a shill for the "climate change" crowd ever since.

Duckster-- When we control the pipeline" which we would" If necessary we could force Canada to sell the oil to us or countries friendly to us. Once built the line will need monitors, folks manning pump stations, etc, all along the route which are jobs, folks at the end manning refineries, shipping ports, etc and I am sure Canada won't get a free ride for their oil traversing our country.

threestrikes--- no problem, for a minute there you had me confused though. LOL

pfenix-I did try the far left hate sites, they just weren't for me. As far as what Al Gore said, I heard that right from Al Gore. And he's as far left as they get.

even if climate change and the mis nomer of :global warming" is a hoax (which is is not)... a pipe line going from canada to the Gulf .. then (the oil) of to other countries is not going to help us much... just saying

sonoma says "Try looking at sources other than Fox news occasionally." been there, done that, sonoma. for example, I've looked at Al Gore's folly, Michael Moore's junk, 911 conspiracies, msnbc misinformation, etc. time and space constrains me to continue, or to waste my time looking at biased liberal left-wing media programs.

no thanks, think I'll stick to Fox news.

I wonder what the enviros will have to say once they realize we are starting to develop our own tar sands in the west.

The real scary thing is that Obama hasn't really started to pay back his environmental friends for their votes. Look for the Global warming issue and related actions to start soon.

Al Gore doesn't know anymore about melting ice than I do. He relies on these global warming scientists for his info. The same ones everybody says we should listen to now. By the way, I think they were the same scientists who were stuck in 8ft thick ice that old Al said would be long gone by now. The scary part is, he was 237 votes away from being president.

OPPS - "It was only five years ago in December that Al Gore claimed that the polar ice caps would be completely melted by now. But he might be surprised to find out that Arctic ice coverage is up 50 percent this year from 2012 levels.

“Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years,” Gore said in 2008.

"The North Pole is still there, and growing. BBC News reports that data from Europe’s Cryosat spacecraft shows that Arctic sea ice coverage was nearly 9,000 cubic kilometers (2,100 cubic miles) by the end of this year’s melting season, up from about 6,000 cubic kilometers (1,400 cubic miles) during the same time last year"

All you global warming crazies,please site some scientific facts to support your argument.Not extreme weather that happens.everytime there is a big storm you claim global warming,But you refuse to acknowlege that there were worst storms in the 50's and 60's than there has been this decade.There was the dust bowl in the 30's,more powerful hurricanes and typoons in the 60's.You seem to think you can scream global warming everytime there's a storm but if we site the cold winter you say you can't use that as evidence.

Even if there were no such thing as global warming, the point is that these tar sands cause ENORMOUS damage to the environment above and beyond Co2. And BTW, if you haven't noticed, Canada has made a tremendous swing to the right lately. Steven Harper is totally as conservative as George Bush was.

The same group that doesn't want to leave our children a "dirty" planet, doesn't mind leaving them a 20 trillion dollar debt.

"The world is becoming an ever more dangerous place, with more humans, less habitable land and more conflict, as a result of climate change." That's going a little overboard - the "Climate Change" does not cause the world to be a more dangerous place, nor does it cause this conflict you talk about. You might want to have a talk with your Mommy about what causes "more humans," because that isn't caused by climate change either - unless you figure in this extremely cold winter weather and staying under the covers longer, with nothing good on TV at that hour...
