“Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation’s interest,” Obama said in a speech last June. “And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.”

As meteorologists on Monday added up to 10 inches of snow to their frigid forecasts for the Northeast and Midwest this week, the regions are struggling with a lack of the essential resources residents need to keep warm.
While the cold won’t be quite as unbearable as the Polar Vortex system earlier this month, people in the Great Lakes, interior Northeast, and northern New England can expect to be shoveling, according to Weather.com.
Sand used to keep roads safe during snowstorms and ice buildup is running low in some states, as are the budgets to buy the sand and deploy trucks and plows.
