Which brings us to that's a new study says that oil production of Canada's oil sands area has polluted surrounding legs with chemicals that Kohl's cancer.
That's where the proposed Keystone Pipeline would originate -- Iran is the president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute he joins us from DC.
Jack I gotta say that once the environmentalists get hold of this idea that we polluting lakes with cancer causing chemicals they will kill the pipeline of all over again what -- you.
Well Stuart I think a couple things first of all we look at that study that came out just yesterday.
The Canadian environmental minister very quickly pointed out but those levels that they found in those lakes are within Canadian guidelines number one.
But number two there about ten times less.
In the same levels in urban lakes that are far away from the oil production.
So what they're talking about here is really trying to -- an issue.
Where there isn't an issue.
And it's really unrelated to the determination -- keystone.
The question for President Obama is keystone in the national interest.
And we clearly believe it is prime minister harper of Canada has said repeatedly it's a no brainer -- -- there will be those that will try to confuse the issue they shouldn't confuse any.
That but they're gonna confuse it more I -- -- -- someone for the national natural resource defense counsel on the show a couple of days ago who said.
That the area whether producing this oil from the tar sands in Canada.
Is now -- vast industrial waste land that was the expression that he use.
And would back kind of verbiage around.
That does give the environmentalists are real staff.
To promote the killing of the plot -- all over again -- -- it in your judgment Jack debt.
I think -- agree with me.
That gonna kill this thing.
Well it's a question of fact vs fiction -- as you know at some of these wild outrageous allegations we need to remind people where they're coming from.
Those spokespeople your reference seen.
They adamantly oppose any oil and gas production and they say so publicly -- they're trying to find red herrings they're trying to define it.
Artificial issues and frankly they need to be discipline and honest about the scientific fact I want definitely Al go ahead.
That's -- I gotta close it would this.
One year from now.
I know you think that we should be building the pipeline but I want you to give us all -- will week one year from now will we be you -- a big building the pipeline give me jobs.
Well -- I would suggest right now it's better than 50%.
If the president lives up to his commitment he made to the American people to have a truly all of the above energy strategy.
If the president denies the pipeline.
It's a signal he's not serious about energy policy the United States word game changing opportunity is occurring.
And that he's not living up that commitment he made to the American people.
To provide us with jobs and economic recovery -- that -- that -- draw the API thank you very much for joining -- they -- just started to talk to thank you very much -- quick point real quick a lot of people are saying that Canada has got to get some sort of not -- approving something in the future they got out of Kyoto and a lot of people believe this is also punishment.
And not just in America but punishment against the Canadian government for getting out of -- time -- administration and I happy with that was less sums.
