Obama to make decision on controversial oil pipeline

Obama to make decision on controversial oil pipeline – http://pulse.me/s/2Ki6D
I don’t understand how environmentalists can get so worked up about things like this without weighing the alternatives. If there is no pipeline, the oil will still make it’s way down, but through much less environmentally friendly methods, such as trucks and oil tankers. And to those who would have us shut down the whole thing, would they prefer tankers going all across the ocean, buying oil from significantly less environmentally responsible nations, such as Saudia Arabia?  Not to mention significantly less caring about human rights. Comparing the oil sands to an imaginary perfect energy supply is unfair and unrealistic. America will get their oil from somewhere. Better us than most other oil rich nations.
