Dear Editor: Just a thought… The Catholic environmentalists (“Catholic Leaders Oppose Keystone Pipeline” March 7) owe it to themselves and to us to delve further into the Keystone XL pipeline controversy.
Not to be overlooked is the part of the equation that includes the Warren Buffet-Barack Obama connection. As the saying goes: “Follow the money.”
Dear Editor: I was truly surprised to read about the Keystone Pipeline in The Tablet. The pipeline project versus religion? Please.
I am perfectly neutral on this particular issue but to approach technical/economic/environmental complexities (oil by pipeline, by rail, by barge or by truck?) by mixing them with our faith seems plain silly to me.
Dear Editor: About the Keystone Pipeline, basically environmentalists are full of themselves. They hinder real progress in their country, mainly by useless lawsuits.
By 2050, renewables will provide 3 percent of all the energy in this country Meanwhile, the oil is being shipped by rail and at times, derailments cause much more damage than the pipeline ever would.
