(Washington Free Beacon) Democrats that oppose construction of the ‘Keystone XL Pipeline’ have an ulterior motive, money–investing $1000s of dollars in direct competitors to the company looking to build the pipeline with private money.
On the 05 February, I wrote here that the State Dept issued its long awaited report in the ‘Keystone XL Pipeline’ and found that there would be minimal climate impact concluding, that if the pipeline from Canada is not built, it could result in significant increases in greenhouse gases that liberals claim cause global warming, because the alternative means that trucks and railways used in the transporting of fuel are more carbon intensive than the pipeline.
Sen Tim Kaine (D-VA) remains opposed to construction of the pipeline saying, “In my view, there is now enough evidence to conclude that construction of this pipeline is not in America’s (especially my) long term interest.”
According to Sen Kaine’s most recent financial disclosure the freshman Democrat has $15,001 to $50,000 invested in ‘Kinder-Morgan Energy Partners’ Kinder-Morgan has been looking to build a pipeline hat would directly compete with Keystone.
