Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stands reluctant to make 'tough choices' on the Keystone XL pipeline.
According to Houston Chronicle, "More than two dozen environmental groups are looking to enlist former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in their fight against the Keystone XL pipeline, pressuring the potential presidential candidate to come out against the project before she makes any bid for the White House."
A green group issued a statement saying that, “Given your longstanding advocacy for the environment and the importance of battling the climate crisis, your involvement would lend an important voice to the struggle against this dangerous pipeline and in favor of energy sources that don’t threaten future generations of Americans.”
As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "The organizations, including 350.org, the Center for Biological Diversity, CREDO, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace, have campaigned against the Keystone XL pipeline that would connect Canada’s oil sands with refineries along the Gulf Coast. They represent the deep green band of the environmental movement."
President Barry Obama is delaying a formal decision on Keystone XL, which would mean that Hillary Clinton would have to explain her opinion on the matter, while she hits the campaign trail in a bid to run for the Democrat Party nomination for President in 2016.
