On Friday the US State Department released a final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for TransCanada Corp’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Tonight, #NoKXL vigils were held around the country, calling on President Obama to reject the pipeline.

According to NPR’s story Saturday, “the State Department report finds that even if the Keystone XL is not built, it’s likely that producers would find another way to sell their oil. That’s how the State Department concludes the pipeline would not contribute significantly to carbon pollution.”

In other news, Logic and Ethics professors everywhere were heard vomiting into their computers. TransCanada Corp., for its part, is “very pleased with the release.”
