Thread Name: BS: Will Obama approve the XL pipeline?
Subject: BS: Will Obama approve the XL pipeline?
The jury is out on whether Obama will approve the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline shipping tar sands oil from Alberta to the refineries in the Gulf Coast.

If he approves such a devastating project for the environment, his presidential legacy will be irrevocably tarnished.

James Hanson, scientist and environmentalist specialist says that if it happens, it's
"Game Over". You can expect a climate crisis.

Obama has the authority to approve or disapprove. While the Washington D.C. demonstration headed by Bill McKibben of drew 40,000 people, Obama was playing golf with an oil merchant. What does this portend if anything?
