(OilPrice) If the President Obama approves the Keystone XL pipeline, then it could create an opportunity for environmentalists to force a deal that will ensure another major climate policy is approved.

The White House insists that a decision will be made soon, and that the 1,700 mile pipeline will only be approved if it is in the economic, environmental, and security interests of the United States.

Obama’s administration has attempted to reduce the pressure of the decision by stating that it is merely “a simple permit application on an infrastructure project to transport oil from Alberta to refineries along the Gulf Coast,” as described in the NY Times.
