Washington Examiner supports Keystone XL.

Alykhan July 28, 2011

The biggest thing going against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline’s chances of getting president Barack Obama’s approval is ignorance. Literally: the vast majority of Americans have never heard of TransCanada Corp., never heard of Keystone, and, haven’t even heard of the oilsands. The debate in the U.S. has been largely confined to politicians and environmental… Continue Reading »

That’s the difference that groups lobbying against Ethical Oil want… Continue Reading »

Alykhan July 22, 2011

Here’s an interesting statistic: Every single week, somewhere in China, two newly constructed coal-fired power plants fire up.  The largest coal-fired power plant in the world, in Taiwan, emits about 42 megatonnes of carbon dioxide every year. Some of the biggest U.S. plants put out between 16 million and 25 million tonnes. But even if China’s building much… Continue Reading »
