NOTHING BUT GREEN LIGHTS:

Study: No Impact From Keystone on Greenhouse Gases (Keith Johnson, 8/08/13, WSJ)

Fresh analysis out from energy consultancy IHS Cera says the pipeline, which would carry Canadian tar sands crude from Alberta to Nebraska and eventually to the U.S. Gulf Coast, "will not have any impact on GHG emissions."

Essentially, IHS concluded, Canadian tar sands will find a way to market either through all-Canadian pipelines or through the increasing use of railcars to ship the heavy oil. "Even if new pipelines lag oil sands growth, rail will fill the gap, as it is doing today," the consultancy found, echoing the draft conclusions by the U.S. State Department.
