The Obama administration has been procrastinating on its decision on the Keystone XL pipeline for years — and now comes word that it may kick the can even further down the road. From Reuters :
ExxonMobil’s 1940s-era Pegasus pipeline has been shut down since it ruptured more than a month ago in the Arkansas town of Mayflower, spilling tar-sands oil and making a big mess.

The Progressive , April 4, 2013 SF Protesters Tell Obama No Go on Keystone XL By Tina Gerhart
Any way you look at it, Keystone XL is an environmental nightmare. If we're going to stop this disastrous project and preserve a safer, saner future for our planet, we have to take to the streets and town halls and store fronts and the pipeline route to make our presence felt . President Obama needs to hear from Americans in every corner of the country, from the rooftops of Brooklyn to the grasslands of Nebraska to the coasts of California.
Thank you for taking the pledge with the Center for Biological Diversity to stop Keystone XL. We need a massive groundswell of support to block this disastrous project from going forward.
More than 1,000 people traveled from far and wide to snowy Grand Island, Neb., on Thursday to tell the State Department what they think of plans to build the Keystone XL pipeline . Commenters had a maximum of three minutes apiece to speak their minds during the hearing at the Heartland Events Center, which, according to Reuters , is “a venue more used to hosting monster-truck derbies and antique shows.” Thursday’s eight-hour hearing allowed members of the public to formally comment on the State Department’s draft supplemental environmental impact statement on the pipeline.
Keystone XL is back, and still terrible. President Obama rightly rejected the Keystone XL pipeline in January.
