Wow, Brad Wieners, the Executive Editor of Bloomberg / BusinessWeek is out with an editorial urging President Obama not to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

The first two paragraphs cut to the quick (though I could do without the part about Justin Beiber):

Give Me One Good Reason Obama Should Approve Keystone XL

Really, there could be two:

1. President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and economic growth-focused Washington want China as America’s new BFF and plan to let Beijing know by offering up an energy supply from our friends to the North.

2. Obama, Kerry, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper have worked out a quid pro quo. The Yanks will accept a pipe carrying toxic sludge through America’s bread basket so long as Canada takes over counterterrorism in Afghanistan, sends peacekeepers to Ukraine, and Harper himself places Justin Bieber under house arrest so he can’t tour in the lower 48.


Those are such short-term, short-sighted reasons to approve the pipeline.  Just sad.
