Keystone XL Pipeline – Do We Need It? At What Cost? Who Benefits? Who Knows!

The Keystone XL Pipeline (“XL”) is the 4th phase of the original Keystone project. What the press rarely seems to mention, is that phases 1-3 are already complete and transporting Alberta tar sands bitumen oil all the way to Illinois and Texas refineries. The XL portion is essentially a 2nd wider pipe from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska, only this new pipe will take a more direct route across Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska. The XL route to Steele City will be shorter than Phase-1, provide for larger volumes, and enable Montana and South Dakota to literally add to the mix.

Israel’s current military operation in Gaza is a human tragedy, leading many to ask, isn’t there a better way? 

I believe there is a better way, and that's for Israel to offer hope, progress, and resources to the Palestinians in Gaza, so much so that the general Gaza population will reject extremist Hamas tactics.

As long as Israel brings death and destruction, they are playing into the extremist's hands, enabling them to rally the general Gaza population --who normally simply want to live in peace--against them.

Too much damage may have already been inflicted, but if Israel truly wants a peaceful Gaza neighbor, they are certainly going about it the wrong way. Only through offering progress and hope will Israel initiate the failure of extremist Hamas from within.

Just another day in the United States of America, where the greatest country in the history of civilization generously uses Super-Max solitary confinement for 23 hours/day. Where 2.5 million people are incarcerated—at least 80,000  in solitary confinement? REALLY?
HOW did we ever come to violate so many of the fundamental beliefs that have enabled us to climb so far? Solitary Confinement for 23 hours a day—indefinitely?

The Mother of All Rants – Where Is Our Compassion, Morality & Justice? Are We The Next Dinosaurs?
http://gravitysailor.com/social/compassion-morality-justice/
Of course, hard work, commitment, innovation, and industry deserve reward; but not at the price of environmental destruction nor the abandonment of the less capable or fortunate.

Have we lost all compassion for one another? Do we not all wake up everyday asking, “how can I contribute to the overall good?” And if not, when did it become acceptable to begin your day with any other thought?

As we're heading now, our local and global internecine disputes may relegate humanity to nothing more than a quick blink of biological happenstance.

All very good points. But I am looking at the bigger picture. There are at least a billion stars in our galaxy alone, and there are at least a billion galaxies, likely much more.

Aggression may serve on this planet, but it is going to prevent us from ever leaving this planet. Our resources are not inexhaustible, and are population is growing very fast. It won't be that many generations before we overwhelm the planet and are going to need to expand within the solar system and eventually the galaxy.

Of course, we need to last long enough to advance far enough to make this happen. Our aggression may relegate  us to nothing more than a quick blip of existence........we've only been around 200k years in a universe that is 14.5billion years old. 

Number one? Yes, we're wrecking the planet better than any species before us.
