Noted. Thanks, Cal.
Yes, excellent news! They still might file a new permit and wait for the next President. And, they have all those other pipelines, as well as trains. Where there's a will, there's a way----and the dirty polluters will figure out a way around the "rules." We will all have to stay on top of this.

Good old Barack despite all the nasty things you say about him he's really not a bad old fellow.

Agree with Lois. Obama has done the right thing at the right time, prohibiting things from getting worse for now. However, if elections do not go well in 2016 for the Democrats, things may turn around in no time. meanwhile the pipelines already transporting tar sands should be under constant surveillance as should these companies, which will just try any new pitch as long as it's worth their money.

LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.
NO MORE drilling, coal mining, fracking,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
==========
Leave the OIL IN THE SOIL
the Coal in the Hole
the TAR SANDS IN THE LAND.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP
=========
Support the International DIVESTMENT Movement.
DIVEST from Dirty Fossil Fuels and Nuclear Power.
