Andrew Gage, Staff Lawyer, West Coast Environmental Law, penned an article with the title “Dear President Obama: In Canada climate change affects none of our decisions!”
His article is a good analysis of the recent State Department Review of the Keystone XL Pipeline. He compares the process followed by the State Department in conducting that Review with similar decisions of Canadian Government agencies.
We know that the State Department accepted that the tar sands bitumen would get to international markets whether or not the cross-border Keystone XL link was built. Gage disputes this conclusion.
Regardless, he is right on the key issue!
