EPA Keystone review links oil sands to higher carbon emissions

The US Environmental Protection Agency said developing Canadian oil sands would significantly increase greenhouse gases, a conclusion one environmental group said gives President Barack Obama reason to reject the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. “Until ongoing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of oil sands are more successful and widespread,” developing oil sands crude “represents a significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions,” the EPA said Tuesday in a letter to the State Department, which is reviewing the project.

Keystone: Calls for oil pipeline carries to be used only in US

Senate Democrats said Tuesday they’ll push amendments to legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline requiring that it’s built with domestically produced steel and that the oil it carries is used in the US. “The project now would simply pump American oil across the American heartland -- not to be used here -- but to be shipped overseas,” Senator Charles Schumer of New York, the Senate’s third-ranking Democrat, said at a news conference. With polls showing a majority of voters supporting Keystone, Democrats have sought to undermine its purported benefits to the US.

Nebraska Supreme Court clears the path for Keystone Pipeline

TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL pipeline faces one less hurdle after Nebraska’s highest court cleared its path through the state, sending the matter back to Washington. The pipeline would funnel crude from Alberta’s oil sands to a network junction in southeast Nebraska, for transport to Gulf Coast refineries. While the ruling is a victory for energy independence proponents, the project’s fate remains uncertain.
