Nebraska approves Keystone pipeline route: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University energy policy expert Warren Mabee is available to comment on today’s announcement that Nebraska’s governor has approved a new route for the Keystone pipeline.

Dr. Mabee, the director of the Queen’s University Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy, says the last major step remaining now is approval from President Barack Obama.

“This move by Nebraska wasn’t entirely unexpected. The big question now is will President Barack Obama approve the Keystone pipeline? In his inaugural address yesterday, he signaled he was going to make a greater commitment to climate issues. The approval of the president is the last major hurdle Keystone has clear,” says Dr. Mabee.
