The articles at WUWT have been getting very silly lately. There's another silly one today (archived here). Anthony claims that:
Canada pulls the plug on the U.S. Keystone Pipeline – will send oil to Asia
...Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.
Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.
The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.
All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia.
Anthony's wrong on more than one count.
- The decision hasn't been "just approved". The Canadian government announced it nearly two weeks ago, which makes it old news.
- It's not "either/or". The Enbridge Northern Gateway Project is quite a separate initiative to that of Keystone XL. It was first proposed back in 2006.
- There are still a lot of hurdles to overcome before it becomes a reality, if it does.
