Climate Impact, If Any, Of Keystone
P. Knappenberger, Cato @ Liberty
I concluded that on an annual basis, the burning of the ~800,000 barrels of oil that would flow through the pipeline each day would produce about 0.0001°C of global warming per year (one ten-thousandths of a degree Celsius)—a value of little climatological significance. But on further reflection, I think this number is too high.
