Keystone XL And The Environment
President Trump is making a lot of big moves on the energy and environment front. Last week, he green-lighted the Keystone XL Pipeline out of Canada after it was stopped by the Obama administration. Tomorrow, he is slated to sign a big executive order pushing domestic oil, coal and gas and reversing the Obama Clean Power Plan. We want to look at where Trump energy policy is going.

Bloomberg News: Keystone Foes Prepare Fight as Trump Issues Pipeline Permit — “President Donald Trump made good on his promise to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline — but the fight is far from over. Instead, it shifts to courtrooms, a Nebraska agency and congressional town hall meetings, where environmental activists and landowners have plotted ways to keep blocking the pipeline TransCanada Corp. has been trying to build for more than eight years. Just winning Nebraska regulators’ approval for Keystone XL’s route through the state could take TransCanada another six months. State and federal court battles could prolong the process.”
