Back in 2011, the Obama administration postponed a decision on whether to build the Keystone XL pipeline until after the election. Now, this week, they’ve postponed it again until at least April.
But the White House can’t kick the can down the road forever. Someday the decider must decide. What do you think Obama’s decision will be?
- Climate blogger Joe Romm thinks the odds now favor rejection of the pipeline.
- TransCanada says in its internal communications (accidentally made external), “We continue to believe that Keystone XL will be approved.”
- CNN: “most analysts still expect Obama to approve the pipeline. But the chances that he won’t are increasing.”
And you? What do you think?
Don’t like those odds? Bigger and louder protests could nudge Obama to reject the pipeline, so maybe you’d like to join in.
