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.
