Time to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline

For six years, President Obama has been considering whether or not to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. Six years is a long time. But there is no indication that the president will make a decision any time soon. The Beaumont Enterprise is calling on the president to end the delay:

The political games that have delayed the pipeline have gone on too long. President Obama has said he will approve it unless it significantly increases carbon pollution. There's still no evidence that will happen, and he needs to stop making excuses to placate environmentalists.

He needs to show bold leadership - now - so the northern leg of it can brings jobs and oil to a weak recovery that needs both.

We agree. The American people want the Keystone XL Pipeline to be built. The State Department has studied it again and again, finding it will not cause any significant environmental impact. It’s time to get moving and let this important part of our nation’s energy infrastructure be built.
