OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:
Environmental activists reeling as Keystone pipeline gains momentum (Zack Colman, 03/05/13, The Hill)
Green groups are reeling after the release of a draft State Department report that seemed to put the Keystone XL oil pipeline on track for approval. [...]The assessment is not final, but could indicate the arguments in favor of the pipeline are winning the day within the administration.That's an alarming prospect for green activists, who argue that approval of the project would be a betrayal of Obama's second-term promise to tackle greenhouse gas emissions."I think he already has laid out the decision he has to make on Keystone," Moffitt said, regarding the president's commitments on climate.
