Keystone XL pipeline fate in balance as Nebraska opens hearings
While they ways the pros and cons of the pipeline they need to consider their economy which came in at 50 in a recent GDP calculation actually shrinking by four percent.  The pipeline would create sorely needed jobs and economic activity.  The anti-energy left which opposes the pipeline has nothing to offer but fewer jobs.

There is also a strategic reason for approving the pipeline.  It can bring heavy crude to the Gulf refineries to take the place of that from Venezuela which is in a state of collapse.
