Jarkesy & Company– George Jarkesy, Chairman of the National Eagles and Angels Association, noted investor, and money manager, has released a scathing indictment of the political controversy behind the Keystone XL pipeline project. With a take-no-prisoners approach, Jarkesy outlines a strong rationale for expediting the construction of the pipeline.
Mr. Jarkesy stated that, “We cannot let a reliable, friendly, and logistically convenient oil source pass us by, especially with a strained economy and soaring gas prices. Ignoring a close and readily accessible long-term energy supply is reckless, and I believe if we lose this opportunity, history will judge this administration harshly.”

Mr. Jarkesy addresses environmental concerns raised by the Keystone XL pipeline saying, “25,000 miles of pipeline already run through the Ogallala Aquifer, with 2,000 of those in Nebraska, and THOUSANDS of oil wells have been drilled through the aquifer, resulting in 24 billion barrels of oil produced since 1930. Instead, the Administration has pandered to environmentalists and lawyers, despite this overwhelming evidence and crucial need.”
