Judge Blocks Keystone XL Pipeline Construction

November 13, 2018

A federal judge has halted construction on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.  The judge said in an opinion that the government failed to present a “reasoned explanation” for allowing the project to proceed and “simply discarded” the effect the project would have on climate change.  The 1,179 mile pipeline that would carry 800,000 barrels of oil per day is on hold following the court’s ruling.
