Gas prices up -- -- 33 straight day that's one of the reason some people want President Obama to approve the Keystone Pipeline.
Which would carry oil from Canada to Texas.
But others are opposed and bimetal activists were in DC over the weekend they're worried that the Keystone Pipeline would increase global warming.
They held a protest on one of the coldest days of the year one of them threatened to use any means necessary to stop the pipeline from happening let's.
What aiming at this after the cut but we will dismantle the pipeline we would like -- by any means necessary for this pipeline to not be built whether that means it strikes.
But -- workers or by any means necessary.
-- saying dismantling physically violation of the law -- any kind of -- terrorism higher.
It depends on the circumstances.
I think if it gets a possibility means necessary we mean by any means necessary we would support it.
I think he means business sent Eric can you explain to us a bit -- increase 33 days in a row.
Why people why it's a personal impact guy and he -- necessary Demi says that this is gonna call stat for more money for -- It was it was -- -- -- -- music with the wind chill minus twenty or something like I mean that's it is.
You have to hand it to them they are pretty dedicated -- -- dividend at least I don't remember at least.
Two occasions where they are -- -- global warming conference and it had to be canceled onetime personal tactical.
All right so here's the deal -- pipeline in February Keystone Pipeline -- bring six or seven or maybe even 800000 barrels of crude oil to be used to -- down there.
That will help because 65% the price of gasoline is is -- input price.
More supply bring the price down.
We really need some more refining capacity what once you get that and more crude oil price will drop.
We need one blend of yes adding up and saying that right now -- -- And we have a hundred blends of gasoline there's no reason -- West Coast -- East Coast when Chicago bland outside Chicago bland it's a summer winter fault line that its absence and he dropped -- pick one -- -- -- By Susan -- -- of bonuses to the industries were imported less oil that we have been -- long time one to.
There -- lack there of their group of to have refiners that are down going through their normal winner.
Change of -- and we lost in the past refinery in New Jersey because sandy.
There is something be said about not being -- to refine oil and getting -- of the of the price is gonna go out.
Thanks address that very quickly it's -- highest price.
For February ninth when nineteenth today behind starting price for a minute ago in history so whatever happens of the summer restarted and I -- I think capacity issue has been one that they've that's been building for about fifteen years so it's not like Washington couldn't deal with -- in some -- get -- To get ahead of it the one thing I wanted to to get -- take on this.
A lot of celebrities that it's true he -- -- -- -- -- deal listen to this aria DOS.
This pipeline is now for the benefit of the American people this pipeline is so that we can start selling to China and other places which and then he would stay -- is creating some jobs and it's about bringing in money but most of that money isn't trickling down to anybody.
Yes I and you knowing that what people say that dolphins are Smart as humans I always roll my eyes.
That -- -- Rosario Dawson and I go maybe their rights may be -- for -- in Iraq look if you could gain energy from the Hollywood stupid you could Howard this world.
And Mars and Venus.
You're talking about radioactive oil spills on -- and -- will semi sterile and that sounds Shakespearean.
Anyway these morons think this and think our cars could be powered by unicorn.
And he goes about that.
Three if we had -- -- we we do have to take dodge to deliver natural gas cars and buses a lot of buses use natural gas to get around we have enormous -- natural gas is no reason we don't put infrastructure and so that -- so.
You're gonna fracking are.
I probably Franklin yeah Lyle don't fret about my job I'd say the -- -- -- -- I -- -- -- that you need to get back to -- do nuclear power.
You got -- that cops say it is someone in it but it that one of the first acts of the new administer the second term.
Would be that he would approve the pipeline do you still think is -- you're worthy of the approved but well if he has that he listens to one of the democratic party's stalwarts he might be persuaded otherwise listen to Al Gore.
Junkies -- signed veins in their fellows -- -- in their arms and legs give out.
Am certain you know we're running now is easy to produce oil so we're going to this is tar sands -- What we get when you get.
-- it doesn't interviewing and it's not a -- Things get really hot air Obama could trick everybody just build Windmills on top of the fracking sites and call that a triumph of clean energy -- every celebrity will buy into this like an idea all over the country -- move it out of the -- but it.
That is she natural guess is good and they didn't admit that got you got -- -- -- situation where the reviews analysts that the state.
Local and it and it's especially federal level.
Is not allowing us to have the potentially could in the jobs to cut and what I hear -- Kimberley and -- and here.
When Al -- speaks about -- -- it seems haven't spoken like a true billionaire has never going to have to worry.
About money for the rest like the people families who are dealing with gas prices up 33 days in a row yet on the earliest day of the season -- those families are worried that people have.
Each time mad justifiably intolerant of -- to mean Obama needs to show the leadership that Bob Beckel believes that he's gonna have and put this through I mean really there isn't a good reason not to just because -- some freaks out there.
An out the one that he made -- -- -- as a trade off is due to carbon tax that Republicans have never gonna put at.
But you know that the fact is that there are there in their natural gas fracking wells -- -- -- now.
Because they can't sell goods to look at all of the precious -- something -- depressed -- you.
Guys were against for acting for the longest time and I might get a -- all Bob Bob nobody gets out -- -- -- -- think yeah.
I don't know Bob Bob but I'm single liberal left -- Against fracking was environmental concern but yeah they -- coming out of your you're -- -- that they're putting it off before the election so Obama wouldn't take off.
The environmentally side and a lot of time.
And your benefit -- -- West Virginia and I learned about it and I think it's a good thing but they aren't the hot hot what I do.
Let's Damon that -- the movie that they've that Hollywood -- helped produce Matt Damon what was called.
As anti fracking spend was just a different documentary that was created as it's called -- nation which I highly recommend because I think a lot of people could be persuaded would be -- it's gonna show one thing.
And a map of the United States there are pipelines that exist in the United States -- bears all the pipelines and it added Keystone Pipeline.
To that and it really is not that much more.
Thank you can see that I actually have very good eyesight and I didn't act don't but trust me whenever it's.
Whenever there's a crisis the media -- -- says.
Women in minorities hit hardest.
You know whether to storm whether it's homelessness but never with oil they never -- -- gas prices hit really high they never say.
You know the poor can't hardly -- the single mom didn't get -- If they don't say that because protesters don't care because the protesters -- or their subsidized by their parent I'm glad neither the women are making message about ego I have purchasing and I like this -- -- -- I had -- -- -- ever have to go -- very bad but this is there that chance was.
President Obama we don't want no climate change drama.
That's not without lying that's nice -- blinding your grammar coached -- are ahead.
