12. It isn't about fungability, it is about the lies Americans are told

They are told that if we build the pipeline, the oil will be used in the US.

It won't. The link at post 7 covers that.


Fungability is purely a notion conconted to allow one nations natural resources to be sold under the notion that by not having it to use here we will all convert to less energy consuming systems. Alternative energy systems are years from being feasable.

In the meantime, we are giving away the resources.

The notion that this pipeline will solve all our ills related to energy is a farce.
