Draw The Line?

Five rallies, all with different starting times(?), will be held around the state today, against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

Or as the online Ragister referred to it, the propoosed  Keystone XL pipeline.

These “Draw the line” activities are being stirred up by the Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change crowd and that means State Senator Rob "Boss" Hogg, who said --

“Most Iowans know that the Keystone pipeline would make climate change worse and would threaten our natural resources”

If most Iowans did, you wouldn't be demonstrating and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Draw the line?

Is that another blurry red line?

What difference at this point does it make?

We've only got 1.75 billion years and perhaps as much as 3.5 billion years left, based on the rate of rising temperatures of the Sun.

Back to Boss Hogg --

Opposition to the pipeline is growing even more, however, as Iowans realize that TransCanada wants to condemn American farms and ranches to build the pipeline to Port Arthur, Texas, to export tar sands on the global market.

But Boss, to satisfy environmental concerns, Keystone XL builder TransCanada, rerouted the pipeline around environmentally-sensitive parts of Nebraska and Construction of the final section of the pipeline “will disturb less land than the pipeline that has already been built.”
