People froze to death in TX and some folks want to stop the oil production under the false narrative of protecting the environment. I'm all for green energy but not at the price of the loss of human life. It's just like the pipeline project getting shut down. A pipeline is the safest way to transport oil and the leak detection capabilities are far greater today than ever before. Our own politicians and bureaucracies are crushing the private sector in so many ways with over 120 different taxes and regulatory fees. Then they wonder why people need stimulus checks and 53% of all people are no considered low wage earners as the swamp gets richer.  Socialism and fascism are truly dangerous ideologies that have never worked.

Instead of 800,000+ barrels of oil running down the Keystone daily. Now they’ll have to use 4,000+ semi trucks and 1,300+ train cars to move it. DAILY. The stoppin of Keystone was never about the enviornment.
