Keystone XL http://wrkf.org en Election-Year Politics Dooms Energy Bill, Averts Pipeline Vote http://wrkf.org/post/election-year-politics-dooms-energy-bill-averts-pipeline-vote As expected, an energy efficiency bill failed in the Senate on Monday, which makes a separate Senate vote on the Keystone XL oil pipeline unlikely before the November election.<p>Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had made a Keystone vote contingent upon passage of the energy efficiency bill, and letting one doom the other may have temporarily gotten him out of a bind.<p>Reid faced a dilemma: Some Senate Democrats — especially vulnerable ones running in conservative states this year — want to support the pipeline.

It looks as though the "comment period" for the project will be extended, delaying a decision past the November elections. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 NPR.

The U.S. State Department's released an environmental impact statement that says the project would not make climate change any worse, and it's now up to President Obama to decide the fate of the pipeline. NPR's Jeff Brady reports that environmental groups and many Democrats want the president to reject the review's findings.<p>JEFF BRADY, BYLINE: The Keystone XL pipeline would carry oil from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada, almost 1200 miles south to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Although the Obama administration's answer on the Keystone XL pipeline is not expected anytime soon, politicians in Washington and Canada are ramping up the pressure for the project, while environmentalists are pushing hard against it.<p>The intense focus on the decision reflects the fact that the Keystone XL pipeline has become a proxy for the larger debate on climate change emissions.
