Obama is killing energy sources and jobs

Obama's Jobs Commission says The US needs energy for our economic development.

So Obama kills energy sources AND jobs. And this is despite detailed study showing no impact on the environment.

… “the Department of State’s Final Environmental Impact Statement reaffirmed the findings of the two previous environmental impact statements, namely, that the Keystone XL Pipeline will have no significant impact on the environment.”

Understanding the economic implications, Democratic Senators Max Baucus, Jon Tester, Joe Manchin, Ben Nelson, Mark Begich, and Mary Landrieu have all expressed support for the pipeline.
Energy Secretary Steven Chu did not explicitly support the pipeline but did acknowledge that “it’s not perfect, but it’s a trade off” and that Canadian oil sands producers are “making great strides in improving the environmental impact of the extraction of this oil.” These are bold words from a man who has unabashedly derided fossil fuels in support of renewable energy and welcomed high gas prices. President Obama’s former “car czar” Steve Rattner also emphasized that the president should approve the pipeline permit.
