-- the group raises the money goes ahead and builds the wind -- -- those solar panel.
Would that be enough to actually block approval for the keystone XL North Dakota senator John Hogan supports -- pipeline it's.
He is here with his state senator what your reaction what you just heard.
Well look I'm for developing all of our energy resources we can certainly have wind and solar along with oil and gas and all the other types of energy as well.
I don't know why one should block the others and -- -- even convinced that there project -- because remember this pipelines underground so.
There may be able they may be able to do it and still.
Down the pipeline go underground and in the same night area.
But again let's develop all of our energy resources.
Yeah I mean they're they're definitely going for a visual based said that this land was along that happened a gentleman who owns it.
You know doesn't want to see that landed any circumstance and he definitely has several dogs in this fight.
Without question I wonder there when we're watching what happened in Canada.
With the transfer of oil on Ray Allen -- the explosion that we side and a loss of lives there.
You know now the death toll is up to about fifteen and still counting still looking.
At this oil is going to be moved no matter why so maybe putting in a pipeline is the safest thing to do.
Melissa what happened and come back it is tragic.
That in fact is oil it that it came from North Dakota and that.
Could be moving by pipeline so clearly we need this.
A vital pipeline infrastructure this is about.
I'm moving more product doing it safely for example the keystone XL pipeline we'll take 500 trucks a day off our roads.
Just in my state of North Dakota.
Alone so what we're trying need to do is use the latest greatest technology.
Working with -- to develop all of our energy resources and become.
Energy independent so we don't have to bring in oil from Venezuela or the Middle East this is something we -- to work on to gather and and we can't.
-- -- -- the gentleman that came before -- doesn't want that oil and our country whether it's by rail or -- by pipeline no matter how it gets here he doesn't wanna how many people do you think are like that how strong is the opera.
You know all in the latest polling something like seven -- 80% of the people in that country support bill in the keystone XL pipeline so it's overwhelming.
Support and when you see something.
Like what avenues -- that happen you know our our hearts and -- -- of those people we wanna do things as well as weekend with the right kind of infrastructure.
And with the greatest safety.
Where do you think the president is going to ultimately come down unless I mean environmental activists are rallying outside bit of fund raiser that he is that hey you know this evening.
On this very issue trying to dissuade him from approving -- -- from lending his support.
What how do you think he's going to ultimately react in the long run.
-- -- goes right back your last question.
I think almost 80% of the people in the latest poll in this country want this project built for energy security.
He needs to make a decision for the American people not for special interest groups that oppose it -- what's your twenties actually get -- do.
I think he'll approve an obvious we have put an awful lot of pressure on the last -- when I submitted legislation on this we got 62 votes in the United States senate.
Supporting the keystone XL pipeline projects -- I think we put enough pressure on and I think you will approve it now.
But we'll see that we -- and I -- by the end of August that's what we're pushing for.
Before I let you go I just want to ask you about -- visual I mean it's pretty clever of this group try to put out renewable energy in the past.
Do you think that would cause any kind of a slow down I mean if you're trying to.
Take this land to make the -- -- didn't and you know they're sitting there with the solar panel if they do it in the end you know maybe one wind turbine.
Powering it up and then they needed a community center did they achieve the visual.
On the hard to say remember we murder rerouted once in Nebraska to accommodate concerns in the state.
And for example in my state we have all of the above we have oil and gas we have wind and we have solar they can coexist.
So we'll see -- again let's find ways to get things done not to block things.
Senator thanks -- cannot.
Thank you time.
