Don’t you wish President Obama would just tell us straight up whether he was in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline or not? In his Climate speech last week in Georgetown, Obama said that the Keystone XL pipeline would only be approved if it “does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.”
It was the quote of Obama’s speech. On Twitter, climate activist Bill McKibben said, “So pleased that Barack Obama understands that the KXL fight is about climate.” Al Gore, on his blog, wrote that “This was a terrific and historic speech, by far the best address on climate by any president ever.” These 2 morons just don’t get it – Obama certainly did not say that Keystone would be rejected like they think. On the contrary, any rational parsing of his words can only suggest that the pipeline will be approved after all.
