President Obama and John Kerry announced today that the Keystone pipeline is officially dead and will not be built in the U.S.
Obama cited the global threat from climate change as a reason the pipeline should not be built. The perspective this administration takes on global threats is indeed baffling:
ISIS, N. Korea, Iran, Russia, China, no threat. But building the Keystone Pipeline would be the end of the world! According to Obama

Letting Iran have nuclear capability seems like a bigger threat to our climate than a pipeline pic.twitter.com/WhTWmu6fnv

So Obama trusts Iran more than he trusts a pipeline…..

It took less time for the White House to determine a nuke arms deal with Iran, than it did to determine Keystone. #KeystoneXL

Keystone Pipeline (and the jobs it would create) is not in the Nation's best interest, but arming Iran with Nukes is?! #ObamaLegacy
