The Keystone XL pipeline is one of the most controversial projects facing the Obama administration. As this little guy explains, it promises jobs! And development! And energy security! But ... it sounds like he might have some not-so-fantastic confessions to make.

35 permanent jobs...sounds like more temporary jobs pretending to clean up expected spills as longest term benefit for the US (multinational corporations are not the US in my book no matter how much they try to pretend).

Have you also had word that alledgedly the dicision on KXL might COME SOONER than expected? they had announced a delay into 2014 but few days ago I read about rumors that Obama might speak final word very soon. If you BELIEVE the DOS actually conducted another review and considering the millions of public comments you also believe in Santa Claus..

In terms of earlier, there is a petition asking for a polar bear to be given the tradition Thanksgiving pardon by POTUS by turning down KXL:

Please, sign the petition:
Tell the Obama administration: Drop your court challenge of Texas Landowner Mike Bishop

"Texas landowner Mike Bishop – a former Marine who has been representing himself in court – scored a major victory earlier this week, when a judge moved forward his case alleging that the Army Corps of Engineers illegally granted permits to TransCanada without conducting public hearings or a study of the water risk of a worst-case pipeline leak.

But instead of standing up to protect Mike Bishop, other landowners, and all Americans who are threatened by Keystone XL, the administration is trying to dismiss the case and throw these concerns under the bus for the private benefit of TransCanada.

In the wake of the Obama administration’s challenge, we need to show we stand with Mike Bishop, and urge President Obama to do the same.

It is simply astonishing that the president has not only allowed TransCanada to move ahead with the southern, export portion of Keystone XL – it issued an executive order expediting the process.

Now the southern portion is almost finished and nearly operational. And the Obama administration permitted the pipeline, despite holding no public hearings on the route, or conducting any studies on the project’s threat to major waterways – as was done in Nebraska with the northern portion of the pipeline.

TransCanada has seized land from Bishop, and countless other landowners in Texas and Oklahoma under eminent domain – which is supposed to be used for projects that benefit the public good.

But the Oklahoma to Texas portion of Keystone XL is specifically designed to export tar sands oil overseas – to the benefit of TransCanada and other private oil companies, at the expense of our land, water and climate. The Obama administration should absolutely conduct an analysis of the damage to our water from pipeline spills, and hold public hearings, before it makes a decision on whether to allow TransCanada to start operating the southern portion of Keystone XL.

Tell President Obama and the Army Corps of Engineers: Drop the case against Mike Bishop’s legal challenge and protect Americans from Keystone XL. SIGN THE PETITION!
