Obama gives no support to Keystone XL Pipeline

Posted: 06/26/13 09:14

President Barack Obama is telling the State Department it shouldn't approve the Keystone XL pipeline unless it's sure the project won't increase greenhouse gas emissions. Obama made the announcement yesterday in a speech on his climate change plan at Georgetown University. Environmental activists have been pleading with Obama not to approve the pipeline, which would carry oil extracted from tar sands in western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast. Jane Kleeb with Bold Nebraska says the project does emit greenhouse gas emissions.
