The Shallowness Of Opposing The Keystone XL Pipeline ...

2021-1-26 · The all-purpose climate argument is the central focus: Keystone XL supposedly would worsen anthropogenic (man-made) climate change. The pipeline would transport 830,000 barrels per day of Canadian crude oil, the total greenhouse gas emissions from which would be about 150 million metric tons per year or about 0.3% of the world total.

Keystone XL''s Emissions Versus Coal-Fired Power ...

An easier way to think about it is that each day the Keystone XL would transport oil that will produce the carbon emissions of (356,900/28,616) = 12.5 coal-fired power plants. Another comparison is that the coal-fired power plants in various stages of planning are equivalent to (1,199/12.5) = the oil carried by 96 Keystone XL pipelines.
