Democrat former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer pulled one over on The Ed Show yesterday. Ed lapped it up, out of ignorance I presume. The governor shilled for Canadian Tar Sands Keystone Pipeline. Ed handed him the chance to beg for the pipes approval, and put forth a number of false statements like below.
The pipe could take the dangerous exploding trains off the tracks, and put the tar sands crap in the safest pipeline in the world. Total crap. The tar sands mine is already producing more than can go through the pipe and they are expanding at a rapid pace. We will end up with a pipe that can leak or explode as demonstrated in the last few days and months, AND, the trains of dangerous tar sand gunk will continue rumbling through our towns, the number of trains will probably grow.
He also said this will help us have more oil and gas. This is not true, or not much, Valero and the other major recipient of this poison on the Gulf Coast have already, it's in their stock reports, signed contracts to refine it here and export almost 100% of it. What we get more of is pollution and mountains of dangerous waste from one of the dirtiest hardest to refine petroleum sources on earth.
Ed, you fucked up, you didn't have any knowledge of the facts, your staff didn't get you up to speed, or your OK with this, either way I really now consider much of your reporting to be suspect.
I wanted to email Ed, can't find a goddamn address for him, only the twitter shit, fuck a bunch of twitter.
