The U.S. government just approved the permit for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, reversing a major Obama era policy against the $8 billion TransCanada pipeline. The move was celebrated by Trump supporters who say the pipeline will help create jobs and reduce American dependence on foreign oil. Environmentalists say the pipeline is a short-term solution with extremely negative long-term effects. Plus, supporters over-exaggerate the number of jobs it will create. What do you think?

President Trump signed an executive order in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline within a week of taking office, but March 24 marks the official approval of the project from the U.S. government. Approval of the Keystone XL pipeline was pending State Department review—and that hurdled was cleared when Secretary of State, and former Exxon Mobil CEO, Rex Tillerson finally gave the oil pipeline his blessing.

Once completed, officials say, the 900-mile pipeline would carry 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada into the U.S., first through Montana and ending at refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast.
