Genius economist and chemist Robert Redford, who occasionally stars in utterly predictable and ponderous movies, is letting us know how happy we should all be that Canada will be shipping it's oil to ecologically conscious, non-profit China instead of the rapacious and filthy US.
President Obama has just rejected a permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline -- a project that promised riches for the oil giants and an environmental disaster for the rest of us.While his movies are almost always indigestible pieces of leftist propaganda trash, Mr. Redford is universally considered a serious player in the world of biology, petroleum engineering and corporate finance.
His decision represents a victory of historic proportions for people from throughout the pipeline path and all across America who have waged an uphill, years-long fight against one of the most nightmarish fossil fuel projects of our time.
Thanks for sharing your views, Robert! I can't wait to hear what you have to say about space travel!
