The Keystone pipeline would not benefit this country at all, the benefits espoused by republicans are nothing but lies. John Boehner and other republicans have money invested in the venture, and will make a lot of money if it is approved... That's why they want it so badly.

If the pipeline increases carbon, or the use increases carbon. But it will be done with or without the US involvement. Wouldn't it be funny if the extra processing required was done with sustainable sources meaning that it does not increase greenhouse gases?

I still will not be satisfied until he axes that carbon bomb once and for all. Mr. President, listen to the scientists, not the suits!

He said "significantly increases..." that seems to be the keyword here to leave a backdoor open.. we'll see.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I just hope this isn't being used as a tactic to shut up the protesters. Because it won't. I will keep speaking out, signing petitions, sending letters....I say that now's the time to ramp up our opposition. We let the Admin. literally run us out of the room when it came to the public option. Banksters ended up pretty much writing the Financial Reform bill, and are continuing to deny funding for many programs in that bill. I applaud Obama's comment about dirty coal, but replacing it with fracking is just insane. No, now is not the time to stop our protests.

What is worrisome about the President's statement on the Keystone XL is that the language he used mirrored the State Department's controversial Environmental Impact Statement on the project which claimed the pipeline would not cause "significant impact." If the President evaluates the pipeline on the basis of the State Department, then he may approve the planet-killing pipeline. We need to keep up the public pressure. We need to support the blockaders and the protesters. Anyone that can join direct actions should do so. We cannot let down our guard. There is no guarantee that the administration and the government in general has actually gotten the message: #NOKXL
