O’Malley Opposed To Keystone Pipeline

November 19th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley took to Facebook to voice his disproval of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast. The Democratic governor said earlier this week that he wanted to see the Senate reject a bill that would approve the pipeline. The senate vote Tuesday  saw O'Malley get his wish. O'Malley says the pipeline would produce too much carbon dioxide and wouldn't create nearly enough jobs to justify. He says it's time to reject "smallball choices facing us on energy" and instead "build a national renewable energy grid." O'Malley says that would create hundreds of thousands of jobs while reducing carbon emissions. O'Malley is considering running for president.
