A depot used to store pipes for Transcanada Corp's planned Keystone XL oil pipeline is seen in Gascoyne North DakotaBy Amanda Becker WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Many Americans are lukewarm on President Barack Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline, with more than a third saying they didn’t care either way, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows. TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline to link existing networks to let oil flow from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, was rejected by the Obama administration on Nov. 6 after years of deliberation. The 1,200-mile (1931 km) pipeline out of Alberta’s oil sands became a flashpoint for environmentalists, who argued the U.S. should keep the dirtiest fossil fuels in the ground as the country shifts to renewable energy and not enable additional oil extraction.
