  •  Um. Where have you been? (0+ / 0-)

    The massive promotion of fossil fuel oroduction under Pbama has been a major part of the campaign including Bakken and Powder River Basin.  So, the only difference is thatBakken isn't subject to a choke point decision the way the tar sands are.  The idea that it has jack all to do with what is Canadian has to rank among the all time stupidest comments on dailykos on climate change.   Oil is dangerous hazardous toxic shit and we need to get off it yesterday.

      and have seen approximately a total of 2 anti-Bakken diaries EVER.

      And about that many anti-tarsands diaries EVERY DAY.

      The whole phenomenon  is nicely summarized in the reaction to this disaster - i.e., wrt knee-jerk blaming of the tarsands when they were not even involved.

        you should read more of the climate change diaries, since many many of them rail against Obama's all-of-the above energy policies and the push to extract more fossil fuels, which includes Bakken.  Just because a different method (you are telling me there have been no anti-fracking diaries here?  Honestly?) used to extract this stuff, doesn't change any of the underlying criticisms of it. Of course the knee-jerk anti-environment responses tend to miss that.
