Go get them Ezra..... whoo hooo, yahoo and yah, yah !!! We should get down on our knees and thank God for giving us the oil sands which are helping the country so very, very, much and keeping us afloat at this severest of times.... but the way the leftish parties go tearing at our best of treasures, they leave us with no doubt the kind of damage they want to cause to Canada and Canadians. Shame on the Libs, the NDP and the Green party. SHAME !! I bet all three parties conspired to bring in Obama's buddies over here to lecture us.... first Cameron and now the NASA pos. Ezra's last sentence in the article is a knockout.
James Hansen, the head of one of President Barack Obama’s NASA labs, came to Canada last week to tell us not to allow a French company called Total to proceed with its Canadian oilsands project.
Even for Obama, that’s quite a foreign policy accomplishment: Interfering with two allies at once.
NASA used to be about exploring space — that’s what the S stands for. But NASA’s new boss, Charles Bolden, recently told Al Jazeera TV that Obama has given him new marching orders: Inspire children to learn math, expand international relationships. “Perhaps foremost. he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.”
I guess that’s what happens when a “community organizer” becomes president.
But when you think about it, Hansen is following Obama’s instructions perfectly: The Saudis probably do “feel good” that NASA is trying to shut down their Canadian oil competitors.
Total is proposing to invest between $15 billion and $20 billion in Canada over the next 10 years, creating 1,300 jobs. Total’s not just producing the oil, they’re going to upgrade it in Canada, too, adding value for export..........
