Murkowski Addresses Senate on Importance of Keystone Pipeline

Posted: April 29, 2014 at 4:02 pm

Multiple state senators addressed the U.S. Senate in regards to the Keystone Pipeline this afternoon.


Sen. Lisa Murkowski said there are currently 17 operating oil pipelines, 30 electric transmission lines, and 29 natural gas pipelines between the U.S. and Canada.


Sen. Murkowski: “And these are all energy infrastructure that cross the border with Canada whether its into Montana, whether its Washington, whether its North Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, Idaho, Maine; you have to wonder, aren’t these all in the national interest here? What is so unique, what is so compelling about this Keystone XL Pipeline that it is not only taking the five years of study that is already done but is now on indefinite hold for yet further study.”

    Keystone pipeline is supposed to bring tar sands oil out of Canada, tar sands oil is the last oil we should ever endeavor to produce. It would be best if we found alternatives because the world can’t survive if we burn all the fossil fuels we could. We have to find alternative energy and change right now.

    Murkowski is promoting the death of our planet when she pushes for Keystone.

    No Keystone XL, not now, not ever.

    Vote Murkowski out of office, she’s not serving the best interests of Alaskans or anyone except her corporate sponsors.

    Ron explain your ” world can’t survive if we burn all the fossil fuels we could ” comment.Statements like yours has no evidence to the claim!

  • ron says:

    No evidence? No evidence you say?

    Ever hear of climate change? Ever hear of aquifer depletion?

    Ever hear of actual scientific data?

  • Jeff says:

    Ron, I think it is time for you to take your meds and then take a nap. The latest on Global Warming has been scientifically debunked!

  • JCF says:

    It’s only been debunked by the Koch brothers, FOX (Fixed) News, & the right-wing radioheads Jeff. If you understood science you would know it is very much real. There is a conscensus among almost all scientisits world-wide, and has been for quite a while.

  • Jerry says:

    Debunked you say? Listen to anything besides Fox news?
