"After extensive public outreach and consultation with other cabinet agencies, the State Department has decided that the Keystone XL pipeline would not serve the interests of the United States. I agree with that decision," President Obama said Friday.
The controversial project pitted environmentalists concerned about climate change against Republicans and oil companies who said the Alberta-to-Texas pipeline would create jobs.
