Keystone XL Decision – in 2014? Or, the President Could Just Say No Now. New Report Reaffirms KXL Fails the Climate Test

Looks like there will be further delay when it comes to the White House’s determination whether or not to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. Conflicts of interest have come to light that call into question the validity of the latest environmental impact statement on the pipeline. The Office of the Inspector General is investigating concerns that Environmental Resources Management, the contactor responsible for the environmental impact statement, had worked for the prospective pipeline builder (TransCanada Corp.)  and for other oil interests that would benefit financially from the KXL.

So while we expected a Presidential decision on the KXL any time now – the Administration isn’t likely to make a move before the Inspector General’s report next year. This buys us more time to oppose the pipeline. On the other hand, Mr. President, why not cut to the chase and oppose the Keystone XL pipeline now, in accordance with your commitment to reducing carbon pollution?

newcoverToday, Green America joined our colleague organizations in the release of a report authored by the Sierra Club and Oil Change International, “Fail: How the Keystone XL Pipeline Flunks the Climate Test.” The report compiles all the information that the President and the public need to understand the wisdom and necessity of halting the Keystone XL pipeline – now and forever.

    Teeth whitening trays fit in tightly over the teeth in order
    to accelerate the bleaching process. As
    a general rule, for those with sensitive teeth, its best to start with a lower bleaching percentage.

    They’re used by a wide variety of reasons-recreational, religious,
    medical and also for self-image purposes. Lamentably, lots of the people who work inside the medical department
    from the marijuana and the therapies for these luck glance at the necessity to collect more money and resort
    to proceed to the illegal part from the market. Reserva Privada
    Sour Diesel create a good yielding, but stretchy cannabis strain.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
