The Democrats want to control the countries energy.
Shutting down the pipeline is just the beginning of what he has planned.
His energy controlled democrats who believe that the green deal will actually help will cost US employees over a 100,000 jobs, that 20,000 is just the beginning.
Plus energy costs will skyrocket because that oil has to be trucked from point A to B.
Biden feels it is safer to have hundreds of trucks full of oil traveling thousands of miles in populated cities is safer.

To Elwood Blues - the article also says "However, the Canadian government says technology has created more energy-efficient practices, reducing climate-damaging emissions."

The excuse is protecting the environment and endangered plants and animals. There are no endangered plants and animals on The Great American Prairie. Now it will be worse for the environment. Canada will still build a pipeline to either its West Coast or its East Coast. And America will move the same amount of oil with hundreds of trains and thousands of tanker trucks every week. So there will still be a pipeline threatening the environment but now there will be the added threat of spills and death from numerous truck and train accidents. These people are so dam dumb they don't even know that the gasoline they put in their car comes out of a huge gas pipeline near where they live. This is what happens when we let morons take over.

Not to worry. He is blaming Trump for reopening a pipeline that was desperately needed and help cause the price of gas to drop below $2 per gallon. That does NOT fit in with the New Green Deal.
(Notice how the price of gas has gone UP 30-35 cents per gallon since election day?)

That was explained in depth on the nightly news Thursday evening. I'm sure you can find it online.

He didn't shut down any pipelines. He stopped the construction of another pipeline, which isn't yet operating, because far more than a mere 20,000 Americans were against it or would be harmed by it, ranging from Native American Indian tribes that who sacred lands would be damaged to communities that could lose their water supply if the pipeline leaked.

Biden also issued a stop work on President Trump's Wall. Even more Americans are out of work today.
