I have complete and total faith in our local and national leadership to come up with appropriate solutions that will help everyday working people who are already struggling under the combined weight of so many unfortunate coincidences.

by burning "dirty" oil, i think we come out with the same amount of green house gasses. distilling heavy oil yields less higher volatile distillates and distillates the burn less completely. even with an electric vehicle, the electric energy is generated by burning the "dirty" distillates. maybe not same-same but more "dirty"?

The background should have had pipeline pieces that were both being dismantled and already being trucked away labeled Keystone. On day one, our prez decided to stop being energy independent and now the pipeline has been chopped up and bought. No relief there, even if we wanted.Be aware folks of these excuses about the "permits". Look more into it and you will see that if you just follow the monies, the democrat party is experiencing windfalls. Nobody reports on it.
