President Barack Obama's position on Keystone XL

Climate change is among the factors President Barack Obama will consider when examining the impacts of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry tar sands oil into the U.S. from neighboring Canada, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters yesterday:
The President wants the best possible decision.  And I think he made clear in an interview the week before last what he views are the criteria necessary by which to judge whether the decision is the right one or how to make that decision, including issues of public health, climate change, economic growth and jobs.  All of these things have to be factored in to a decision that’s made.
