Keystone XL is a proposed tar sands pipeline that would connect Alberta, Canada with Gulf Coast refineries and would carry 800,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil across the United States to be refined, exported, and burned. President Obama says that he will reject the pipeline if it poses a risk to the climate, so the decision should be easy. Despite the fact that it does pose a major risk to the climate and the environment, multiple phases of the project are currently underway and have already been completed.
The TransCanada Corporation is a major North American energy company based in Calgary, Alberta, they responsible for the Keystone XL pipeline. According to their website:
“Keystone XL Pipeline will be the safest and most advanced oil pipeline operation in North America. It will not only bring essential infrastructure to North American oil producers, but it will also provide jobs, long-term energy independence and an economic boost to Americans. TransCanada remains fully committed to Keystone XL, the facts show Keystone XL passes the national interest determination test and President Obama’s climate test. It will be built with minimal impact to the environment.” (source)
The video below reveals the truth behind something we have seen happening for decades on Earth, with this pipeline and with similar projects that have taken place.
Not long ago, Obama said that we don’t yet have the technological breakthroughs to completely replace fossil fuels. He said that for the next 20 years we are still going to be using oil, coal, natural gas, and all of the traditional sources to fuel our cars, heat our homes, so on and so forth.. (source).
I find it funny how corporations like TransCanada, along with mainstream media, will present this topic (Keystone XL pipeline) to be a debatable issue. The result is that people come away from watching this propaganda with the same opinion. They become programmed to believe that this is a debatable issue, that it has both positives and negatives, when it is utterly clear that there are nothing but negatives involved here. We have better alternatives, we don’t have to do this anymore, and that is non-debatable. The solutions are very feasible.
It’s also important to remember that major corporations (food, energy, health, finance) dictate government policy. In the eyes of many, politicians (Bush, Obama, Clinton) seem to have no say in these matters. There is a puppeteer in the background (like TransCanada) and politicians are usually there to take the blame. It seems like we no longer live in a democracy, but rather, a “corporatocracy,” hiding behind the guise of a supposed democratic political system.
It’s extremely clear that we do have solutions to the current energy challenges we face. This became even more evident in the mainstream world when (recently) the Rockefeller family dropped their investments in fossil fuels and switched over to clean energy. (source)
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, there are multiple viable and affordable solutions that could be implemented fairly rapidly if we were truly invested in making change happen. Current energy corporations have the money, resources, and human capital at their disposal to do so, but choose not to. We could populate the world’s deserts with solar panels, utilize wind turbines or vortex-induced vibrations (or a combination of these), and much more.
The point I am trying to make here is that there are so many solutions which we could implement if we really wanted to, without having to give up any of the comforts many in the Western world enjoy. What is even more alarming is the fact that everybody on the planet can have these basic necessities provided to them, yet nothing is ever done. It’s completely possible, but nobody is making it happen.
There are also a number of developments being made with regards to over-unity devices, one great example is the work of Paramahmsa Tewari , You can find more articles by Collective Evolution on over-unity here.
You would think, given all of these new developments, that these ideas would be explored more openly in the mainstream, but they’re not, and many people aren’t even aware of them.
We do not need to destroy the Earth anymore. So ask yourself, what is going on here? Why are these big corporations so insistent on destroying our planet and convincing a part of the population that this type of infrastructure is good for the economy, that it doesn’t hurt the environment? What is really going on here?
