Η Γεωπολιτική του Καναδο-Αμερικανικού Αγωγού Keystone Pipeline

Οι Αμερικανοί και οι Καναδοί συζητάνε εδώ και καμιά δεκαριά χρόνια την κατασκευή του αγωγού Keystone, ο οποίος θα μεταφέρει κάθε μέρα 800 χιλιάδες βαρέλια Καναδικού πετρελαίου στις ΗΠΑ και τον Κόλπο του Μεξικού. Τον αγωγό θα κατασκευάσει, αν κατασκευαστεί ποτέ, η μεγαλύτερη Καναδική εταιρεία ενέργειας Trans-Canada.

Ο αγωγός αυτός θίγει και το Μεξικό, και την Βενεζουέλα, αλλά και μικρότερες χώρες που εξάγουν πετρέλαιο, όπως η Βολιβία και η Κολομβία, αλλά και την Αργεντινή και την Βραζιλία, που δεν είναι αυτή την στιγμή εξαγωγείς πετρελαίου και αερίου, αλλά έχουν πολύ πλούσια κοιτάσματα σχιστόλιθου.

Υπολογίστε επίσης ότι από τον σχιστόλιθο θίγονται οι εταιρείες που παράγουν ηλιακή ενέργεια, και γενικότερα ανανεώσιμες μορφές ενέργειας, σε πολύ υψηλότερες τιμές από την ενέργεια που παράγεται από το αέριο, το πετρέλαιο και τον άνθρακα. Στο Βερμόντ, την πολιτεία του Sanders, υπάρχουν πολλές τέτοιες εταιρείες. Βλέπε Front Page MagThe Islamist-Environmentalist Alliance”, Νοέμβριος 2011.

Όπως καταλαβαίνετε, όπως γίνεται χαμός με τον σχιστόλιθο στις ΗΠΑ, γίνεται χαμός και με τον Αμερικανό-Καναδικό αγωγό Keystone. Ο αριστερός Εβραίος απατεώνας Bernie Sanders είναι πάλι φανατικά κατά του αγωγού.  Βλέπε Huffington Post “Bernie Sanders Is Against Keystone XL. Hillary Clinton Was ‘Inclined’ to Approve It.

Η Κλίντον αρχικά ήταν υπέρ του αγωγού, αλλά έκανε τόσο μεγάλη φασαρία ο Σάντερς, λόγω “οικολογικών ανησυχιών”, που η Κλίντον αναγκάστηκε να αλλάξει θέση. Βλέπε CNNHillary Clinton opposes Keystone XL pipeline”, Σεπτέμβριος 2015.

Μία από τις μεγαλύτερες περιβαλλοντικές οργανώσεις των ΗΠΑ είναι το Sierra Club, το οποίο πολεμάει φανατικά τον αγωγό Keystone, και δηλώνει ευθαρσώς ότι ο μεγαλύτερος σύμμαχος της οργάνωσης είναι η Σαουδική Αραβία.

Ο Ομπάμα άσκησε βέτο το 2015 και δεν ξεκίνησε η κατασκευή του αγωγού Keystone, επειδή είναι επικίνδυνος για το περιβάλλον. Βλέπε New York Times “Citing Climate Change, Obama Rejects Construction of Keystone XL Oil Pipeline”, Νοέμβριος 2015.

Το 2014 ο Ομπάμα είχε πει ότι ο Keystone θα ήταν μόνο για να εξάγει Καναδικό πετρέλαιο, και άρα δεν είχε πολλά να προσφέρει στις ΗΠΑ. Βλέπε Political Fact “Obama says Keystone XL is for exporting oil outside the U.S., experts disagree”, Νοέμβριος 2014.

Ο αγωγός Keystone ήταν ένα μεγάλο αγκάθι στις σχέσεις ΗΠΑ-Καναδά όσο στην διακυβέρνηση του Καναδά ήταν οι δεξιοί, αλλά με την άνοδο του κεντροαριστερού Justin Trudeau το πράγμα χαλάρωσε, γιατί παρόλο που ο Trudeau υποτίθεται ότι είναι υπέρ του αγωγού, δεν θεωρεί ότι το θέμα του αγωγού είναι τόσο σημαντικό ώστε να χαλάσουν οι δύο χώρες τις σχέσεις τους. Βλέπε “Justin Trudeau 'disappointed' with U.S. rejection of Keystone XL”, Νοέμβριος 2015.

Προφανώς και ο θολοκουλτουριάρης Justin Trudeau δεν θα μπορούσε να πει στον Καναδά ότι είναι κατά του αγωγού, γιατί ο αγωγός θα έφερνε τεράστια έσοδα στον Καναδά.

Despite the star power of Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese, the 2013 hit movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” took more than six years to get made because studios weren’t willing to invest in a risky R-rated project.
Help arrived from a virtually unknown production company called Red Granite Pictures. Though it had made just one movie, Red Granite came up with the more than $100 million needed to film the sex- and drug-fueled story of a penny-stock swindler.
Global investigators now believe much of the money to make the movie about a stock scam was diverted from a state fund 9,000 miles away in Malaysia, a fund that had been established to spur local economic development.
The investigators, said people familiar with their work, believe this financing was part of a wider scandal at the Malaysian fund, which has been detailed in Wall Street Journal articles over the past year.
The fund, 1Malaysia Development Bhd., or 1MDB, was set up seven years ago by the prime minister of MalaysiaNajib Razak. His stepson, Riza Aziz, is the chairman of Red Granite Pictures.

Fracking is the fossil fuel industry’s latest false solution to our energy challenge. It’s more expensive, more polluting, and more dangerous than clean, renewable energy. So why are we pursuing fracking in the first place?

Today the United States Senate joined the House of Representatives in passing legislation backing construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Environmentalists are depending on President Barack Obama'sveto pen to block the project--at least until the State Department issues its final ruling in the matter. But we have another, even more potent ally in the fight: the House of Saud. Rather than cutting back production in order to stabilize oil prices, the world's largest oil producer is keeping its petroleum taps wide open, hoping to drown upstart competitors in Canada, North Dakota, and Russia in a sea of cheap oil. Here's Puneet Kollipara in The Washington Post:

While the debate rages, some people have taken a firm and bold stance on the environmental disaster in the making. Perhaps the biggest opponent of Keystone XL in Congress is Senator Bernie Sanders, who says, “The idea that we would give a green light for the transportation of 800,000 barrels of some of the dirtiest oils all over the world makes no sense to me.” In addition, Bernie Sanders has openly questioned the sanity of Congress, declaring that “it is totally crazy” to think Keystone won’t adversely affect the planet and states the following:

One big question for Democrats in 2016 will be Hillary Clinton’s ‘inclination’ to support Keystone. In an article by The Christian Science Monitor titled Hillary Clinton has a Keystone XL problem, Clinton’s ambiguous position on the biggest environmental controversy of recent years is analyzed:
9η Παράγραφος
In February, President Obama sided with progressives like Bernie Sanders and took a direct and unwavering stand on the Keystone XL pipeline, vetoing the Keystone XL bill and blocking what 350.org describes as a “pipeline that would connect Alberta, Canada with Gulf Coast refineries that would carry 800,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil across the United States to be refined, exported and burned.” Like Bernie Sanders, who vehemently opposes the pipeline and believes it will lead to a “significantly less inhabitable” planet, Obama listened to the concerns of Greenpeace and others regarding “how disastrous the tar sands oil industry is to the climate.”

Finally, the word “why” will be an important issue of its own in the upcoming election. If the GOP supports Keystone, and Clinton was “inclined” to support it, then why does there exist a difference on Keystone between Sanders and Clinton? Why is one person overtly against it while the other is silent? The answer to this question, and to several others, could dictate who wins the 2016 Democratic nomination. It’s also an answer that might enable Bernie Sanders to win the presidency.

In this presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders is the closest candidate to the aspirations of millions of decent Americans dreaming of a better future for their children while refusing to lend their name to an imperial republic that systematically arms the rich tyrants around the world, supports Israel stealing Palestine and murdering Palestinians one settlement at a time, and helps to create monstrosities such as ISIL.

I intend to vote for Bernie Sanders conscious of a crucial development in the US Muslim community. This year is the first time that I will vote in a presidential election conscious of being a Muslim, and that consciousness is a significant event in the make-up of the US Muslim community at a time of intense Islamophobia.
I will not be the first nor the only Muslim voting for Sanders in the US. The fact that US Muslims are significantly siding with Senator Sanders has already made majorheadlines in the US.
There is, in fact, an entire Facebook page dedicated to "Muslims for Bernie Sanders 2016". Leading Muslim scholars and intellectuals like Zareena Grewal and Donna Auston have also written eloquently as to "Why Muslim Americans should vote for Bernie Sanders". 
Reports indicate that "in less than three weeks, Bernie Sanders, being a friend of the Arab and Muslim American communities, has become legendary, and the support from this community of Sanders voters has been growing online since his March 8 victory in Michigan."
The significance of US Muslims rallying behind Sanders as "the only Jewish candidate" should neither be exaggerated nor misinterpreted. This is a crucial development, but we need to know why.

President Obama announced on Friday that he had rejected the request from a Canadian company to build the Keystone XL oilpipeline, ending a seven-year review that had become a symbol of the debate over his climate policies.
Mr. Obama’s denial of the proposed 1,179-mile pipeline, which would have carried 800,000 barrels a day of carbon-heavy petroleum from the Canadian oil sands to the Gulf Coast, comes as he seeks to build an ambitious legacy on climate change.

President Barack Obama and many other Democrats think there’s little to be gained by building the Keystone XL pipeline.
On Nov. 18, Senate Democrats voted down a proposal to build the oil pipeline -- which would stretch from Canada to Steele City, Neb., where it would connect with an existing pipeline that goes to Texas' coast.. But the issue isn’t going anywhere. When the new Republican-led Senate takes over in January, it will likely be at the top of their priorities list.
Obama and other Keystone critics have argued that the pipeline would have a negative environmental impact, while having little benefit for the United States. For example, constructing the pipeline would result in few permanent American jobs.
"Understand what this project is," Obama said at a Nov. 14 press conference in Burma. "It is providing the ability of Canada to pump their oil, send it through our land, down to the Gulf, where it will be sold everywhere else. That doesn't have an impact on U.S. gas prices."

No activist group in America has promoted the growth of tyranny around the world the way that the environmentalist movement has.

Every time environmentalists kill a project in America, they revive it overseas with less oversight, more pollution and without the human rights. The death of Keystone XL means more pollution in China and war in the Middle East. Crusading environmentalists helped kill America’s industries and kept the regime in Beijing alive. The tanks that rolled over the democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square were as green as their environmentalist backers. Both of them painted in the resplendent color of American money.
