Moving Right Along...

...S senators urge approval of Keystone XL pipeline "
A bipartisan (Emphasis mine) group of more than half the 100-member U.S. Senate has urged President Barack Obama to approve the northern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline project, which would connect Canadian oil sands to refineries in Texas.“This is about something that Americans want. It’s about energy for this country,” Senator John Hoeven, a North Dakota Republican, told reporters on Wednesday."
Majority of senators back Keystone XL pipeline
"Hoeven and Senator Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, wrote a letter to Obama, signed by 51 other senators, urging him to approve the TransCanada Corp project, which has been pending for nearly four and a half years.

The letter came a day after Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman approved a revised route for the pipeline to travel through the state while avoiding ecologically sensitive areas."
[Ed. I don't know about you, but I'd like to meet this Senator Max Baucus. Sounds like it might be a lot of fun to have a glass (or more) of wine with him.]

And this is just the cherry on top: Keystone XL prompts ‘unprecedented’ Sierra Club decision to break U.S. law

But, maybe not.
