This is something many noticed with Trump about his flip flops!
It's like he forgot where his home is sort of piss ass coming in your house
pissing in your closet! WTF! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tyct9l-fD8
And so it's again with the oil pipelines! So can we trust Trump well...
Looking in to his past flip's it is clear that we can't.
To me I don't trust what he says as to me he is catering to stupid people
and life does not revolve around stupid as it makes others lives lower.
Like quicksand expecting everyone to lower themselves to some heap of crap.
Just because they cut off their leg to save their toe does not mean you have to also!
~~~~~Resurrection of Keystone and DAPL cements America's climate antagonismIf there were any lingering doubts over Donald Trump’s enthusiasm for shoving the US back into the smoggy embrace of fossil fuels, his decision to revive the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines banishes them utterly.
Trump has thrown down the most provocative gauntlet possible to the environmental movement, which now sees its worst fears crystalizing within a few days of the inauguration. Those Trump Tower chats with Al Gore about climate change – and Ivanka Trump’s apparent concern over the issue – now vanish over the horizon. This will be an aggressively pro-oil and gas administration, even if that means boiling the planet.
“Simply put, Donald Trump is who we thought he is: a person who will sell off Americans’ property and tribal rights, clean air and safe water to corporate polluters.”
The resurrection of the Keystone XL pipeline will cause particular anguish among climate activists. Protests over the plan to run the 1,200-mile pipeline from the Canadian tar sands to Texas dogged Barack Obama throughout his presidency. Finally, in 2015, Obama announced that the pipeline would not go ahead, stating that the refusal showed the US is “now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fight climate change”.
That climate leadership is now in danger of being eroded, at a time when the world’s major polluters must drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions if the world is to avoid dangerous global warming. The tribes and other groups that fought for years against Keystone will now to have to wearily re-enter the fray against TransCanada, the company behind the project. Following Obama’s refusal, TransCanada sued the US for $15bn under the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Trump has invested in Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind Dakota Access, but his spokesman has claimed, without providing evidence, that the president has now removed this conflict of interest.
During the 2016 election campaign Trump promised to revive large energy projects and promised a “a big piece of the profits” for the American people. Republicans staunchly opposed Obama’s restrictions on oil and gas development, claiming they held back the US economy. Now, more extraction looks likely to get the green light, such as drilling the Arctic Ocean, which Obama banned in his final days in office.
Activists are still trying their best to sound defiant. “It’s a dark day for reason, but we will continue the fight,” said Bill McKibben, co-founder of climate activist group 350.org.
“This is not a done deal. The last time around, TransCanada was so confident they literally mowed the strip where they planned to build the pipeline, before people power stopped them. People will mobilize again.”
