Why the KXL pipeline no longer matters.

This was written a few weeks ago when Hilary came out "against" the KXL.
NEWSFLASH: The KXL does not matter. -- BH

Subject: Re: Clinton comes out against Keystone

Guess what? It doesn't mean anything.

KXL Northern Leg can be killed now,
and probably will if Hillary is against it.
They've already got another plan, and a backup plan.

Recall the KXL southern leg renamed the Gulf Coast Pipeline
is already built.  (red dotted line, bottom)

Existing KXL Southern leg already is built Cushing OK to Port Arthur TX

Proposed ETC Dakota Access. Notice how it conveniently bypasses
the Nebraska problem area (Ogallala Aquifer and Sand Hills region)
to the East:

Proposed Enterprise Partners Pipeline avoids Nebraska to the West:

It's about 200 miles from either of these to pick up tar sands from existing
Enbridge pipelines in Canada, e.g., Regina, SK, CA.

It's hard to see without a composite map. I'll try to whip something up on this soon-ish.

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
