The keys to Keystone
Controversy has delayed plans for an oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Here's a graphic look at the issue.

Do you know that if the many multinational multiple groups of climate scientists are even half right that it means the end of 90% of the human race by 2050 or 2060, as there is no possible way for large urban populations to survive a global average temperature rise of 7-10 degrees Celsius? The problem is rather simple, as 3/4ths of the largest 100-cities in the world would become unlivable, and then what do we do with 3-4 billion water-scarcity and food-scarcity refugees, a horde that will overwhelm the sustainability of just about everywhere else on Earth.
If they are only half right the only places that will remain livable will be near the northern Great Lakes followed by Canadian Lakes further north than that, and interior portions of the far southern hemisphere away from the ocean, which may last another 20-30 years due to the remaining Antarctic ice-sheets, as if global temperatures rise by 7-10 degrees Celsius average, our oceans will rapidly acidify, and life won't be possible without a hazmat suit and breathing apparatus within 30-50 miles from oceans due to clouds of acidic fog blowing off the oceans.
Yeah, we need the Keystone pipeline like we need an all-out nuclear war. Just admit it too, if the pipeline is ever built, the main reason IS NOT to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil, it is to give Trans-Canada year-round access to ocean shipping, as somewhere between most and all of the planned Keystone XL flow would be shipped to the Chinese. Isn't that why the Chinese have so heavily invested in the Tar Sands oil as well now in the new proposed Canadian pipeline to Vancouver?
Check this study out., It was new in December just 5 weeks ago. The author is an American-educated post-PHD professor of environmental science at the University of London, England.

Building and opening Keystone XL is the same thing as signing a death sentence for our own children and grandchildren. We must move to renewable energy as fast as possible, keeping in-mind that it will take a minimum of 30 years for carbon emission reductions to stabilize continuing climate warming. Today's warming is because of what has been emitted since the early 1980s. Perhaps if you want to continue to burn oil you should investigate ways to effectively cool the Arctic first? Otherwise lots of people are very likely going to die.
This isn’t the only such study forecasting doom for humanity if climate change continues, as even the International Oil Agency is also forecasting climate change doom if we keep burning fossil fuels in order to meet our energy needs too.
The #1 problem of climate change is surface runoff decline, declining aquifer recharge, and surface water evaporation. Is there such a thing as peak water supply? You bet that there is!
I know, we need energy to power our way of life and heat our homes, so we better get cracking on some other way that doesn't continue to warm our climate up, or our kids are doomed.
