Federal judge issues setback to Trump administration plans on Keystone XL pipeline
By Stephanie Ebbs

"A federal judge says the Trump administration did not consider environmental consequences of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, dealing a setback for the Trump administration and a win for environmental groups."
"The judge put the pipeline on hold until the State Department conducts another review of the possible environmental impact of the project."

The judge has issued a good and sound ruling. Environmental impact is something to consider carefully and is worth much to many and can be detrimental to wildlife and other species. Water quality may also suffer greatly. Therefore, if the company really wants to do it right they need to go back and do the environmental impact study and then reprioritize their objectives in order to meet the standards called for by those objecting to the pipeline. Trump needs to listen and be concerned more about the environment than about money that benefits the rich.
