Former Deputy Nat’l Security Adviser: KXL Not in National Interest
A new opinion piece from former Deputy National Security Adviser and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nancy Soderberg says that building a pipeline from Canada across the U.S. heartland will not improve national security. TransCanada acknowledges, as we’ve argued (and argued) from the outset, that nothing prevents the oil from moving into global markets once it arrives at the Gulf Coast. Americans bear all the risk and inconvenience, Canadians take the profits, the planet sizzles, gas prices rise, and there is no energy security bonus. Remind us again what the upside is?
