President Barack Obama is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects, from pipelines to highways.
Mid American CNG's insight:

Another Government layer won’t expedite up any economic or environmentally beneficial project and may create avenues to filibuster any project his office cares to - XLPipline, Shell LNG export terminals and possibly Fracking.  The question is, are there currently enough checks in place to allow for prudent review?  Of course Obama would still be able to expedite any project he feels beneficial to his agenda.  At what point does it change from prudent oversight to agenda perpetuation?
