That's the point. They will cook up the sludge regardless of what we do. Now, the Canadians will just sell their oil to China and we will forego that supply difference with more Middle Eastern. What's the point of that?

I think climate change is real, but this isn't a climate change issue. It's a "what will happen in reality" issue. And therefore...

Regardless of whether you think climate change is real, those that do are going to oppose developing fuels that no only pollute at the point of use, but also during the refinement process. This is not going to change, and makes it a huge economic risk.
In other words, we need to invest in long term job solutions and not throw money at risky and most likely short lived projects.
Like Solyndra? Totally agree.
