House votes for pro-Keystone XL bill; Rosebud Sioux Tribe calls the legislation “an act of war.” President Obama says Keystone would be potentially “disastrous” for the climate

The U.S. House of Representatives votes in favor of legislation forcing President Obama to approve Keystone XL. In response, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe (Sicangu Lakota Oyate) calls the bill “an act of war” and vows to fight all attempts to build the pipeline on their land.  

Shortly after the House vote, President Obama gives hints that he has soured on the pipeline when he appears on The Colbert Report in December, and says Keystone would be “good for Canada” but not for the United States, and would potentially be “disastrous” for the climate.
