Obama Administration Backs Oil Pipeline From Alberta to Texas
Campaigners disappointed as White House says 1,700-mile pipeline will not cause significant environmental damage. Details here.
The Alberta tar sands - source of "product" for the pipeline
PLT: As pessimistic as I am about President Obama actually stopping this thing, I think the gist of this story is a tad misleading. It is the President, and only the President (not the "White House" or "State Department"), who must sign off on the actual permit that will allow it to proceed. And that has yet to take place.
