As of yesterday, June 25, 2013, President Obama has asked the State Department to hold off on construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. This project is worth $7 billion. The purpose of this project is to transfer oil from Canada’s tar sands to the refineries in Texas. This project seems to be worth America’s interest when it comes to bettering the economy and building cheaper ways to save money, but Obama is asking to put the construction process on hold due to the fact that construction can lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. If this is the case, maybe this isn’t such a good idea. I don’t know about you, but Obama is right, we should think about the protection of our citizens than apply a project that although can help America, but also increase its chances of a horrible outcome.
