  • He's pandering to the left. It's politically beneficial to him to give the dems every little thing they ask for so they will cooperate with him. They are the majority in both the senate and the house. He will kiss their 'rings'. They always place the environment and lives of animals and creeping things above the cost of fuel to the consumer. I don't personally pay for gasoline or electricity at this time, and I don't live where the pipeline is so I have no dog in this fight other than ideology. I could argue on both sides. Extracting oil from shale is expensive so its not going to be profitable until the price of fuel is high enough. Rising prices in fuel will encourage less usage. The population learned from the pandemic that its safer to stay home. They are more able now to stay home than they ever were before. Using less fuel should calm the atmospheric alarmists that think exhaust is bad for the planet, right? On the other hand it will increase our dependence on foreign oil. Ultimately it boils down to the personal choices of everyone on this planet and they are the only ones who can control their choices. Use fuel or don't. Those who lose their jobs will most likely be using less gas, anyway. It also depends on if those who become unemployed look for work or sit back and collect their pennies. I don't really care if its better or worse for Biden. But there are all kinds of factors that are influenced by this decision and probably hundreds of ways to overcome it. I'm a penny pincher and libertarian and I see money that was invested by private companies being wasted by government interference. But I also see a corporate machine laying waste to the earth for the sake of profit. I think they should invest more in spill prevention and safety. But if its not profitable no one will be getting any oil.

  • The issue with dismantling projects thought of as detrimental to the environment is the loss of jobs. I believe the environment is important. I am strongly against global warming, climate change. Of course the economy is of importance too. Perhaps the solution would be train the workers with new jobs. Maybe give the unemployed if applicable intrastructure positions. Infrastructure is the backbone of the US.
