Newby New York Democrat representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, thinks the Keystone XL pipeline has had a major leak. But like hate crimes these days, the supply of oil-related disasters just doesn’t meet the demand, so she had to make one up.
Our federal environment minister shares many of the same kooky ideas about ending our dependence on fossil fuels so I’ve had my fix of wacky green ideas.
But now AOC is getting her facts wrong and plain-old making stuff up about a pipeline that Alberta desperately needs: Keystone XL.
That means she has my attention.
The problem? KXL isn’t even built yet. The builder, TransCanada, is currently mowing grass and clearing brush in the construction right of way.
She got the pipeline wrong. Keystone - not XL - had a 2017 spill that was cleaned up immediately after it happened. She was so sure of herself, but in the end, so wrong.
Keystone XL has become such a pipeline Boogeyman on the Left — especially amongst the celebrity Left in the United States — that the environmentalists have now concocted disasters that haven't happened.
Keystone XL is the Jason Voorhees of pipelines for the Left — a terrifying figment of their own irrational hysteria.
