NYT: Obama Vetoes Keystone XL Pipeline
This is news I have been waiting a long time to read. Obama has vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline. This is not only a great day for the environment, but a great day for our country as well. Our President has made the only sane decision concerning this bill.
For those of you that aren’t sure why this is such a good day for our our country, here is one of the many articles that points out why Keystone XL was a bad idea:
The Pipeline From Hell
Keystone XL and Its Corrosive Effect on Democracy
This is a great article about the realities of the Keystone Pipeline. It is not only horrible for the environment, devastating in its impact on climate change, but it should also be known that most of this oil would be sent overseas.
