America will spend 2.6 Trillion Dollars on Defense by 2020!

 

China will spend 493 Billion Dollars On Renewable Energy by 2020!

 

If America is going to remain No 1 in the Pleiades of Nations, the United States must rid itself of The Anti-American Republican Terrorists Party.

 

With Republicans in control of the White House, Senate and the House of Representatives, they are daily dismantling everything that is good and decent about America. 98 days into Donald Trump’s and Republican Control House and Senate First 100 days and they haven’t done one single thing for America or the American people.

 

Donald Trump and Republicans are enemies of 98% of the American People; The Environment; Education; Women’s Rights; Equal Rights; Health Care and the Out-Of-Control National Debt.

 

Bill Clinton spent 8 years resolving Ronald Reagan and George Walker Herbert Bush financial mess then came George W Bush and Dick Cheney with a Republican Controlled Congress and wrecked America more than most people would ever come to realize.

 

Then President Obama like Bill Clinton spent 8 years bringing America back from the Dead and here we are again with America’s Greatest Con Man and the Fraudulent Controlled Republican Congress, wrecking America again. If they are not stopped, perhaps, just perhaps, America would never survive Donald Trump and The Republicans Destruction.

 

Americans, Republicans, Some Independents and Many Democrats couldn’t appreciate Hillary Clinton’s Life Time Of Sacrifice for America and here we are today with the most stupid man, Donald Trump, sitting in the White House.

 

I hope the Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein and Gary Johnson Supporters along with the dumb Republican Voters are happy to witness the Destruction of everything that made America Great!

Another Blow To KeystoneXL Pipeline; Shell Withdraws From Massive Tar Sand Oil Project!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2015 by sheriffali

[Think Progress] Keystone XL is not the only deciding factor in the future of tar sands extraction.

 

The outsized debate over the Keystone XL pipeline, which entered a new era yesterday after Obama wielded his veto pen against legislation approving its construction, is not the only element in the debate over whether the greenhouse gas-intensive tar sands get developed. Oil supply, demand, and cost are pulling some major levers too: with oil prices at rock-bottom lows, on Monday Royal Dutch Shell announced it was shelving plans to build a new tar sands mine in northern Alberta — the largest such project to be deferred.

 

Shell withdrew its applications for the Pierre River project, which would have produced 200,000 barrels-per-day (bpd), to focus on maintaining profitability for its existing 255,000-bpd tar sands operations, according to the company.

 

“The Pierre River Mine (PRM) remains a very long term opportunity for us but it’s not currently a priority,” said Lorraine Mitchelmore, Shell Canada President and Executive Vice President of Heavy Oil. “Our current focus is on making our heavy oil business as economically and environmentally competitive as possible.

  

Shell was one of the earliest tar sands producers to cut staff due to low oil prices, laying off around 300 workers at its Albian tar sands project in Alberta starting last month.

 

Instability makes it hard for most companies to do business, and unreliable oil prices are no different. Crude oil prices have fallen more than 50 percent over the last six months, hovering between $50 and $60 per barrel of late. Last August, Mitchelmore said Shell Canada’s tar sands business met profitability markers when crude traded above $70 per barrel.

  

Shell originally halted work on the Pierre River project a year ago, stating the need to re-evaluate the timing as a heated environmental review process was taking longer than anticipated. The project was first proposed in 2007.

 

Tar sands are extremely GHG intensive, and the shelving of the Pierre River project along with two other tar sands endeavors — Total’s Joslyn North and Statoil’s Corner Project — has helped avoid the emissions of 2.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to stopping the construction of 18 new coal plants with a lifespan of four decades. Tar sands oil produces as much as three times the greenhouse gas emissions of conventionally produced oil. The government of Alberta, where the mines are sited, expects to lose $5.5 billion in revenue this year because of low oil prices.
