A $9 billion dollar oil pipeline that became a symbol of the rising political clout of climate change advocates and a flash point in U.S.-Canada relations was officially canceled on Wednesday.

Keystone XL, which was proposed in 2008 to bring oil from Canada's Western tar sands to U.S. refiners, was halted by owner TC Energy after U.S. President Joe Biden this year revoked a key permit needed for a U.S. stretch of the 1,200-mile project.

North American oil pipelines, including Dakota Access and Enbridge Line 3, have faced steady opposition from environmental groups, which are concerned about spills and want to slow any expansion of oil production.

The world turns. Fossil fuels are so yesterday.

Bring on the Green Dream or whatever. Anything is better than more of the same polluting stupidity. Jobs lost by oil workers mean services get new employees.

Burger King is hiring. McDonald's too. Get a good job while the getting's good.

No expanded unemployment for you. Losers.

It's. Too. Much. Money. You need to feel the lash of hunger to work harder.

Like everyone else.

"This is a landmark moment in the fight against the climate crisis," said Jared Margolis, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity.

Is it though? I doubt this means the oil will now not be extracted and processed. Does this mean higher utilization of existing pipelines? Will it just be transported by train now which generates even more greenhouse emissions and results in more spillage than the pipelines?
