Well the good news posted yesterday on this blog might not be that good. Check out this coverage from Transport Topics, which says that the Obama administration will consider allowing the Keystone oil pipeline to go from Texas to Alberta, Canada in 2013.
The administration said the Republican-controlled House demanded a decision be made by now, so it’s being put off another year. Let’s see… 2013, that would be a non-presidential election year, right? So, if you allow the oil pipeline to be put into place, you’d lose some votes, but the election would be over.
Call me a cynic, but that does tend to happen in national politics, and we’ve been seeing the Obama administration do more of it lately.
