The Obama administration is unlikely to make a decision on the Canada-to-Nebraska Keystone XL pipeline until late this year as it painstakingly weighs the project's impact on the environment and on energy security, a U.S. official and analysts sa Rea

Thanks for this heads-up. In case he decides to OK it, I want to risk arrest in D.C., and the weather won't be so hot in the Fall!

I hope President Obana sees the sense to say no the Keystone XL, because the environmental hazard risk is so huge and the effects of all fossil fuel are only promoting climate change. We need a cleaner eaeth, no more oil spills like Exxon Valdez or BP, and the whole idea of tar sands is just an excuse not to embrace the Kyoto Protocol and its regulations of CO2 and greenhouse gases.
Thanks Cal, good post.
Lets keep our fingers crossed for President Obama to say no the Keystone XL!

What is there to think about just that it will be disastrous

We cannot rest on this issue - perhaps we should vow to maintain the force on DC - with petitions, marches, letters and phone calls, I do about 4 of these a week, not too difficult - and I'm going to continue the pressure, I imagine that they believe the movement will move to the back burner by fall, more reason to keep it up front!

Noted. I hope this is good news, but it seems we will all continue to press forward and continue growing the movement against this "game over" pipeline.

Hopefully they don't make a decision for a long while, because the longer they wait, most likely the more reason they will have to not approve it, ie higher temperatures evidencing global warming!

"... as it painstakingly weighs the project's impact on the environment and on energy security, a U.S. official and analysts said."

Yeah, right... they had better start thinking about all of us that have made this our line in the sand, and be very, very afraid of the impact we will have should this administration turn traitor on us.

This old bird isn't afraid of being jailed, and i've already been peppers prayed and lived,
And my anarchist friends are starting to make more and more sense when something as catastrophic as the XL is concerned

I guess being safe than sorry is a good thing. At least the decision isn't rushed in any direction.

It has nothing to do with protecting the environment. This is just more cronyism from Obama protecting those that he serves.

Mark Zuckerberg’s New Political Group Spending Big On Ads Supporting Keystone XL And Oil Drilling

Just another reason to Boycott facebook as Mark the Trillionair is helping this dirty project!!

Tell Mark Zuckerberg to stop supporting the Keystone XL pipeline and Arctic drilling!

Without question, Keystone XL is an exercise in stupidity, insanity and short sightedness. At the very least the operators of Keystone should be required to put up a 20 trikllion dollar bond to bring in fresh water to replace the aquifer it will inevitively destroy. And it should be in cash.
