The Keystone XL Tea Leaves

Bloomberg is reporting:
Most congressional Democrats, including leaders in the House and Senate, have joined environmentalists in fighting the project backed by the oil industry, labor unions, the Chamber of Commerce and Canadians. Some lawmakers who oppose the pipeline say it appears probable Obama will sign off, triggering their calls to mitigate environmental and political fallout.
The most important word in that paragraph: labor unions. Okay, two words.

  1. No one I know in the oil industry supports this. Why is this so misreported? It's a duh. Canada floods us with 1mmbopd. Expect prices to go up?
