In the old article that follows are some puzzling media depicted concerns about Canada’s, Alberta’s Tar Sands; the source according to EIA of the United States of America’s most plentiful imports of foreign oil. Critics of the Tar Sands have succeeded in stopping the building of a pipeline(at least during the present administration) to carry Tar Sands oil into the U.S.A. even though that very same oil will continue being shipped by train. Recently I’ve heard that some complain that pipeline ruptures may have been the reason for resisting the Key Stone XL pipeline project; yet media stories about derailed oil tank cars at times have seemed constant. So what’s the problem? Well if the real concern is the mining of Tar Sands oil, methods of shipping that stuff distract from the real need which is to stop mining it. For according to some business journalists despite the nullifying of Canada’s pipeline project and low oil prices, Alberta’s oil industry continues doing rather well, perhaps giving rise to a former Conservative cabinet minister saying America’s cancelling the pipeline leaves some anti Tar Sands critics still unsated.

Since I published “Oil By Train Or Pipe”inspired by an email from the U.S. Energy Administration, some times identified by the acronym EIA, a slew of Nobel Laureates that included former president Carter was reported to have admonished Mr. Obama, the current U.S president not to exceed to Canada’s and some of his fellow Democrat’s pressure to permit the building of the Keystone pipeline that would carry Tar sands products from Canada’s western provinces into the United States. I have learned from these EIA emails that Canada which today is the U.S.’s foremost supplier of imported oil even ahead of Saudi Arabia, the land ruled by the famed royal house of Saad. From this presumed EIA presented fact one must infer that whether or not the pipeline is built should have no effect on whether or not Americans use Tar sands products which they have been consuming…
