Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines are coming back as Trump plans executive orders reviving controversial projects Obama stalled

UK Daily Mail

The company behind the Dakota Access pipeline wants to bring the oil all the way down to a refinery in Illinois

"President Donald Trump will sign orders Tuesday to advance the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines, a pair of projects that were blocked by the Obama administration due in part to environmental protests.

"Trump is to sign the orders Tuesday, according to a person with knowledge of the decision. The move is expected to be cheered by Republicans and some union groups who backed the projects.

"Former President Barack Obama stopped the proposed Keystone XL pipeline in late 2015, declaring it would have undercut U.S. efforts to clinch a global climate change deal that was a centerpiece of his environmental legacy. 

"But Trump has indicated that he has no intention of maintaining his predecessor's global warming policy. He said in an October speech that as president he would 'lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.' ". . .
