The Keystone XL pipeline became a flashpoint about “the environment” and ‘climate change’ back during the Obama years, despite there being numerous pipelines being built around the country. Obama tried to kill it, Trump got it working, Biden has now killed it for his unhinged Warmist base
President Joe Biden on his first day on the job axed the Keystone XL Pipeline, drawing the ire of union workers, industry stakeholders, and GOP lawmakers whose states will be negatively impacted by the decision.
Mike Sommers, president and CEO of trade group American Petroleum Institute, said Biden’s announcement “is a slap in the face to the thousands of union workers who are already a part of this safe and sustainable project.”
“This misguided move will hamper America’s economic recovery, undermine North American energy security, and strain relations with one of America’s greatest allies,” Sommers said.
Mark McManus, general president of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters, said in a statement:
In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1. Let me be very clear: When built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the world.
“Sadly, the Biden administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work,” McManus said. “For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction.”
You know who this helps? China. When Obama threatened it and killed it off Canada had plans to redirect their portion to their west coast, and ship it to China. But, they waited 2 years to see what Trump would do. Will they wait four years to see if a Republican wins in 2024, or just move on?
The Wall Street Journal editorial board also responded to Biden’s move, concluding that not only is it destructive to the U.S. economy but possibly illegal:
[TC Energy] can avail itself of Nafta’s investor-dispute settlement provision until June 2022, which would allow it to recoup its investment. The company also has a strong legal case that the U.S. Constitution gives Congress, not the President, power over foreign trade and that Mr. Biden’s reversal violates due process.
So, basically, on day one Joe Biden killed thousands of American jobs during a recovery. And has also banned fracking, along with drilling in ANWAR and ending all new leases on federal land for fossil fuels
Joe Biden will never lie to you.
