I wanna bring in that how old am blind he is where this now he's the author of get this is the title don't sell your coat there.
How does an environmentalist -- what we call -- sensible and bond.
As I've got this question -- about the Keystone Pipeline.
Degree -- say that the oil that would come from Canada.
To America by the Keystone Pipeline this -- tossed sends oil.
Is really bad stuff it pollutes as in there's more emissions -- in oregano oil.
Is that true.
Wolf from what I read Stewart yes about 12% more of -- is released in the extraction of the tar sands oil.
We have to unpack this okay so for instance scientists like to obsess about carbon dioxide James Hansen is the NASA scientists likes to tell people.
But their carbon footprint should be made as small as possible.
His own carbon footprint is not all that small however he keeps circling the globe and telling other people to shrink their carbon footprint so.
I think it's more important than carbon dioxide.
What is the moral footprints uttered the carbon -- I don't know that I really centrist back on to this -- sense question you're telling her that the extraction of the oil in the first place in Canada.
Not look at all the -- of the more than some is gasoline and gas tank -- the extraction of the oil in Canada.
-- -- a law of CO2 emissions that is accurate but in my opinion.
It's gonna be extracted within it comes in the -- points south whether it goes a pipeline to Canada to a China.
We're gonna get this stuff out of the ground -- all the other oddly so should we be Skaggs should we listen to this gas stories about -- -- sands oil will ruin the climate.
-- we absolutely should not and does scare stories are precisely that what Hanson has said it literally is.
If this pipeline is extended and completed it is game over for the plan.
Now I can't recall a more reckless statement by any scientist let alone one in charge of climate apology for NASA.
And it -- small wonder that people in this country are afraid of this pipeline because they've been misled.
As you say this oil is going to be extracted and it's going to be used.
And and that's just the simple fact we are as Charles was just mentioning.
A fossil fuel based world economy and will remain one for the foreseeable future and by the way that's been wonderful for the little guy.
People on the left want to believe that they are the protector of the little guy.
Whereas in fact making energy needlessly more expensive.
Is an aggressive.
Attack on people of small economic -- signed Harold -- interesting point -- that factor much how we'll see you again soon thank you so.
Thank you much while.
