Washington Post: Obama to Reject Keystone Oil Pipeline
The Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration will reject a Canadian company’s application to build a gigantic oil pipeline crossing the US-Canadian border: Obama administration to reject Keystone pipeline.
Forecast: frothing outrage across the entire right wing blogosphere. In other words, the usual.
The administration will allow TransCanada to reapply after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive habitat of Nebraska’s Sandhills. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns will make the announcement, which comes in response to a congressionally-mandated deadline of Feb. 21 for action on the proposed Keystone pipeline.
