    “65 percent support the potential pipeline….”

    They are overruled by the 51.1 percent of the 2012 election.

    Science magazine (the publication of the largest body of scientists in America, the AAAS) endorsed the pipeline in the 2/21 issue in a very thoughtful editorial. Marcia McNutt, the editor-in-chief, explains the gains environmentalists have made by stalling the pipeline and requiring regulations and changes. She also admits, since the environmental concerns have been met, the pipeline should now be approved. Nature (the equivalent publication in Britain) made the same claim last year. Both are well worth a read to see what scientists, as opposed to environmentalists, are saying. And to see how little time smart environmentalists like McNutt have for the Green movement’s radicalism.

    Economic rationale seems to trump environmental concerns

    What environmental concerns? I see a lot of environmentalists objecting, but no concerns. Especially compared to the demonstrable concerns of transporting oil via rail.
