    Default Teamsters Applaud Green Light for Keystone XL Pipeline

    Following the U.S. State Department’s analysis that the Keystone XL pipeline project provides a safe and correct process for the transport of Canadian oil to the U.S. Gulf region, the Teamsters Union is pleased that the project, which will directly create 20,000 good jobs for American workers, is one step closer to reality.

    The Teamsters Building Material and Construction Trades Division, affiliated with the North America’s Building Trades Unions alliance, praised the alliance’s statement urging that the pipeline project be constructed immediately.

    “Allowing the Keystone XL approval process to move forward was the right decision to make,” said Marion Davis, Director of the division.

    Not so fast.
    Looks like it hit a roadblock in Nebraska.

    A Nebraska judge on Wednesday struck down a law that allowed the Keystone XL pipeline to proceed through the state, a victory for opponents who have tried to block the project that would carry oil from Canada to Texas refineries.

    Lancaster County Judge Stephanie Stacy issued a ruling that invalidated Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman's approval of the route. Stacy agreed with opponents' arguments that the law passed in 2012 improperly allowed Heineman to give Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. the power to force landowners to sell their property for the project. Stacy said the decision to give TransCanada eminent domain powers should have been made by the Nebraska Public Service Commission, which regulates pipelines and other utilities.
    The decision on a federal permit still rests with President Barack Obama.

    Pipeline opponents called Wednesday's ruling a victory for landowners.

    "TransCanada learned a hard lesson today: Never underestimate the power of family farmers and ranchers protecting their land and water," said Jane Kleeb, executive director of the anti-pipeline group Bold Nebraska.
    Then you have this comment. Aren't we producing more oil then ever and using less ?
    Besides, all that pipeline oil will probably sell to foreign countries, like China.


    "This is a terrible decision and if upheld lead to increased dependence on foreign sources of oil, continued unemployment and lost economic impact for thousands of Nebraskans and our communities," he said.
    Yea, sure.
    What he meant to say was big oil won't as much profit now.

    Don't know, but most of those jobs are temporary while the pipeline is built.
    Bottom line, those that stand to profit from the pipeline are the big oil companies.
    The consumer won't see any benefit.
