Obama rejects building of the Keystone XL oil pipeline! #climate #change #YesWeCan

Making this decision has been on Obama’s plate for almost as long as he’s been president… and finally today, Obama has rejected construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline that proposed to run from Canada into the U.S. Supporters of the bill said that this would create jobs and help decrease our dependency on middle east oil. Opponents of the bill argued that this would be a terrible idea for the environment (among other reasons). This is a major win for environmentalists and also a huge positive step to curb climate change!!
