    Engaging, or enraging?

    Or maybe he thinks we won't need that much oil in the coming years?

    "Construction on the long disputed Keystone XL oil pipeline halted Wednesday as incoming U.S. President Joe Biden revoked its permit on his first day in office.

    The 1,700-mile pipeline was planned to carry roughly 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma.

    “The Permit is hereby revoked,” Biden’s executive order says. “Leaving the Keystone XL pipeline permit in place would not be consistent with my Administration’s economic and climate imperatives.”

    Keystone XL President Richard Prior said over 1,000 jobs, the majority unionized, will be eliminated in the coming weeks. “We will begin a safe and orderly shut-down of construction,” he said.

    The premier of the oil-rich Canadian province of Alberta called Biden’s decision an “insult” and said the federal Canadian government should impose trade sanctions if it is not reversed. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a conciliatory tone.​

    “We are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfil his election campaign promise on Keystone XL,” Trudeau said in a statement.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden will call Trudeau on Friday, the first call with a foreign leader after Biden took the oath of office. Psaki said the pipeline will be discussed.

    Trudeau raised Keystone XL as a top priority when he spoke with Biden in a phone call in November. The project is meant to expand critical oil exports for Canada, which has the third-largest oil reserves in the world and is America’s number one source of foreign oil.

    Anyone who pays attention to the really rapid development of alternatives to fossil fuels can notice the sea change in energy generation.

    I can find graph upon graph showing the growth of cheaper than petroleum electricity generation. In 2021 It's Off to the Races for Offshore Wind is just one story I saw recently.

    Do you see no benefits to the pro-environmental aspects of halting the construction of that pipeline?

    Everything has trade offs.

    that he sure does not need )

    That's right.

    Cut off the oil and they will make it.

    Demand destruction.

    Time for us to trade in our buggy whips for some Teslas.

    Which door do I get in this thing?

    Thanks Joe.

    Joking about the flood of executive orders being analogous to a fast flying jet, why ever would you write something like that?

    As a Canadian, I have mixed feelings about the decision. I really regret the lost jobs (Keystone will lay off 1,000 employees almost immediately). But I cannot ignore the fact that the future of life on this planet -- most especially ours -- may well depend on weaning ourselves off of fossil fuels. At the very least for the production of energy. There may still be advantageous uses involving synthetic materials.

    I hear a lot of people arguing about the "cost" of saving our planet -- but I can't help but wonder what might be the result if we decide not to pay that cost.
