Obama Caves on Keystone XL Oil Pipeline

Environmental groups object and Barack Obama caves on the planned Keystone XL oil pipeline

The pipeline would have brought oil from the Canadian tar sands through a number of US states to the Texas shoreline, adding to the capacity of existing lines. Much of the reasoning had to do with the fact that tar sands extraction would produce large amounts of cheap fuel oil and would seriously delay the transition to low-carbon alternative fuels that will be necessary if transport emissions in particular are to be curbed.
