No, You Aren’t Allowed to Build an Oil Pipeline that Is Environmentally Friendly and Creates Jobs

President Obama slow-walked the Keystone XL pipeline even though the backers met all regulatory requirements. President Trump gave the project, which cuts hundreds of miles off of current pipeline distance and saves oil from being shipped by truck and rail, a green light.

Biden will kill it after he takes office, even though it’s better for the environment and creates jobs both in the U.S. and Canada.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday will revoke the presidential permit needed to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline, one of 15 executive actions he will undertake after being sworn into office, aides said, dashing Ottawa’s hopes of a last-minute change of heart.

Biden will sign executive orders and memorandums to address the “crises” of the pandemic, climate change and racial inequity, said incoming press secretary Jen Psaki.

Keystone XL, owned by TC Energy Corp, is already under construction in Canada, and would carry 830,000 barrels per day of Alberta oil sands crude to Nebraska. Opposition from U.S. landowners, Native American tribes and environmentalists has delayed the project for the past 12 years, but outgoing Republican President Donald Trump had revived the project.

Biden’s move marks an early bump in his relationship with key trade partner Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday that Canada was pressing people at the highest levels of Biden’s incoming administration to reconsider canceling the $8 billion project.

Canadian Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson also said on Tuesday, however, that engagement between decision-makers would start once Biden entered office. He expressed optimism that the two countries will work cooperatively regardless.

“We have a whole range of energy-related opportunities with the United States that we are interested in discussing with the Biden team,” Wilkinson told Reuters, giving the examples of clean electricity, decarbonization of industry, transportation and methane emissions.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney threatened legal action on Monday if Keystone XL was scrapped.

    It doesn’t matter how good a thing is for America, he will do away with it just because he and all democrats hate Trump because he is not a career politician and didn’t follow their protocol. He was supposed to kiss Pelosi’s ring or butt and then she would allow his proposed legislation to go before the House and be voted on, except she hates him more than Biden does.

      You forgot Biden will probably give China a key to the Whitehouse. China has Biden in their back pocket. Biden could not have read the contents in each “Executive” order, 18 of them, about 3 hours after he was inaugurated from compromised votes. Also he is not a speed reader nor a speed thinker. That goes for his cabinet and dept. secretaries. Hey, Biden’s press secretary is a real winner.

        If I were President Biden, I might be crazy enough to pre-prepare the “Executive Orders” during the Transition period.
        Goodness…18 of them!
        Where did they ‘suddenly’ come from?

      Once again the constant theme of “…commie regime…”, get sprouted.
      • Where is the application of
      ‘Communism’, from
      President Biden?
      Presumably you know there is only ‘one’ Communist Party in America: CPUSA.
      • Is your premise that
      President Biden’s
      Administration are
      [somehow] all card-carrying
      members?
      I am really confused by your Post.

      I, on the other hand, find it very hard to understand why people such as yourself waste people’s time by writing spurious comments.
