2.5 million. That is the number of miles of pipeline ALREADY in the ground and transporting oil and gas throughout the United States.
23,000 that is the number of new pipeline projects approved in 2012.
So, why is there so much controversy surrounding the 700 mile Keystone XL pipeline when we already have 2.5 million MILES TODAY!
President Obama has kicked the can down the road yet again and postponed making a decision on the Keystone. XL pipeline. I thought a President was the guy that made tough decisions? The guy that led our country? Apparently that is not what Barak Obama thinks as he now continues to put politics above job creation and delay the Keystone XL decision INDEFINITIELY.
