Opinion Duel: CQ Roll Call Moderates Debate on Keystone XL (Video)


CQ Roll Call is excited to offer the first installment of a new video series, “Opinion Duel,” created by The Purple Network. Roll Call has partnered with National Review and The Nation to bring you in-depth discussions of top political issues with more discussion than a short cable news segment. Representing the left, right, and center, each Opinion Duel program will feature an intelligent debate on key legislative issues between The Nation on the left, National Review on the right, and CQ Roll Call editors playing the important role of moderator.

In this first installment of the Opinion Duel, Roll Call’s Editor-in-Chief Christina Bellantoni moderated a discussion with Charles C. W. Cooke, from National Review and The Nation‘s Zoë Carpenter. Carpenter and Cooke discussed the interests surrounding the Keystone XL pipeline and whether President Obama has been active on the climate change agenda. Bellantoni lead the discussion with questions that allowed Cooke and Carpenter to offer differing sides of the political spectrum concerning the Keystone XL pipeline and the administration’s current delay of any resolution to the hot-button issue.

The Purple Network is a partnership which strives to deliver content from all sides of the ideological divide to inform the whole spectrum of politically engaged thought leaders.

    Whoever it was on here that recommended the website Traders Superstore I want to say thanks. You are right they have been very helpful to me in learning to trade. I now have hope that I can quit my job and trade full-time. Trading is not as hard as I thought it was but it helps to learn from the right place.

      It will be interesting to keep a log of how many fools loose their savings along with you. Can you out-perform a calculator? What is the square root of 2? Make it easy, to the 6th decimal. If you can’t do it in a millisecond, you will also lose on trading.

    Although both sides are well supported, as an expert on the effects of carbon on climate change, it is clear the pipeline is a really bad idea. It is completely unnecessary since new alternative technologies, like Pluvinergy, can supply all of our energy needs. Blocking the pipeline will kill, or largely disable tar-sand oil, just like frack-gas is killing coal. A good strong carbon tax would be its final, and wise, end.
