WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has again delayed plans to build the Keystone XL pipeline, which is on its last legs of survival as it is.
News outlets report that Obama will “ask” (i.e. tell) the State Department to not approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline unless it first proves it won’t add to more greenhouse gas emissions.
This move comes on the heels of Obama’s climate change speech, where he unveiled another executive initiative to push for an agenda most Americans do not care for.
The American economy continues to struggle, and the Keystone XL pipeline could have led to jobs that are needed in this weak economic recovery. Republicans are livid and demand that the pipeline be built so it could help create jobs.
