Joe Biden’s Awful Decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline (Guest: Tom Harris)

February 2, 2021

President Joe Biden's decision to go back on the United States' commitments and prevent the Keystone XL pipeline from being completed undermines trust by international partners, companies, and unions.

President Joe Biden's decision to go back on the United States' commitments and prevent the Keystone XL pipeline from being completed undermines the trust international partners, companies, and unions have in the U.S. to keep its word. Canada objected to Biden’s decision and may sue. Other international partners will question agreements they made with the federal government are secure, and trading partners will be more vulnerable to energy extortion absent the oil and gas from the Keystone XL.

Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition joins the show to discuss the consequences of Biden’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.
