    That oil is getting shipped now without the XL. It is getting burned somewhere and it will continue to be burned somewhere for as long as it is produced.

    The problem isn't the oil. It's the demand for oil. This fight is over. And if it wasn't over on the merits, it would be over anyway because thisPresident, like the ones before him and the ones who will follow, are bought and paid for. So the XL will be built whether if be for reason A or reason B. It will be built either way, and stopping it will have no long-term effect on the progression of global warming.

      coming out of the Tar Sands, that makes it the biggest target politically.

      Otherwise I agree with much of what you said.
