"Go Ahead With Keystone" *Wink, Wink*

Another politician who can have it both ways.

...Bloomberg reports that the Obama administration “is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects.” Up to now, under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federally approved projects had to consider potential impacts like dangerous spills or air pollution, but not global warming. Directing all federal agencies to take climate change into account under NEPA will transform environmental policy in this country, putting a huge new drag on the economy in the process....

That little Friday-night newsbite is likely to precipitate an onslaught of lawsuits...against Keystone.

...So the Obama administration could green-light the pipeline, file a report that stops short of calling Keystone a major global-warming hazard, and still find the project delayed for years by environmental groups bringing court challenges under the new NEPA guidelines....

Well, why not?

Republican "leaders" promise to de-fund ObozoCare to get elected, and promptly trashcan those promises with their very next budget.

Obozo's merely following the "leaders."
