Senator Barbara Boxer has yet another excuse for President Obama to deny approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline: she says it causes cancer.
President Obama has been delaying his decision to approve the jobs-creating pipeline for much of his Presidency, but recently told Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin that he would soon make his decision “one way or the other.”
Most of the roadblocks have been cleared away leaving only ideological resistance to the pipeline, but a recent decision by a Nebraska judge that the approval process in the Cornhusker State is unconstitutional is giving the president one more reason to refuse approval.
Now, Senator Boxer is hoping that her wild claims that the pipeline causes cancer might be another one.
Boxer claims that the pipeline will fill the air with pollutants and that this will cause “cancer” and “heart disease.” ……
Maybe if someone draws her a picture of a pipeline and then a choo-choo train she’ll understand? ….. Prolly not.
