Today in Cleantech

Well, it’s happened. The Keystone XL pipeline, which would deliver 700,000 barrels a day of oil from Alberta’s oil sands to Texas refineries, has been postponed.  The State Department has ordered that the pipeline be rerouted around environmentally sensitive lands. I still think the pipeline will get built, but this move allows Obama to take the issue out of the 2012 election, since a review of the new pipeline routing won’t finish until 2013. Way to kick the can down the road.
