Judge Blocks the Disputed Keystone XL Pipeline
in a Setback for Trump’s Energy Agenda
WASHINGTON — A federal judge late Thursday blocked construction of the disputed Keystone XL oil pipeline, saying the
Trump administration “simply discarded” the effect the project would have on climate change.
The ruling by Judge Brian Morris of the United States District Court for Montana repudiates one of Donald J.
Trumpʼs first acts as president. Two days after taking office, Mr. Trump signed an executive order approving the
Keystone pipeline that had been blocked by former President Barack Obama because of environmental
In saying that no work can go forward until the government more fully reviews the pipelineʼs environmental
impact, the ruling tees up another potentially contentious legal battle over climate change with a president who
dismisses mainstream science and whose administration is also seeking to block a landmark lawsuit on behalf
of children asking the government to stop the rise of planet-warming gases.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Environmental groups hailed the decision as a major victory in the long-running battle over Keystone, which has
spanned more than a decade and become a symbol of the political battle over climate change. The nearly
1,200-mile pipeline from TransCanada Corp. would carry about 800,000 barrels of petroleum a day from the
Canadian oil sands to Gulf Coast refineries.
