(Worthy News)-- With a decision looming, both sides of the Keystone XL pipeline debate are making last-ditch appeals to President Obama, with opponents saying the project fails the White House's climate test and supporters arguing it's a no-brainer that will spur U.S. energy independence and economic growth, the Washington Times reported.

TransCanada, the company proposing the massive Canada-to-Texas oil sands project, this week sent a letter to Secretary of State John F. Kerry, urging the administration to approve the project. The State Department now is undertaking its final review of Keystone and then will make a recommendation to Mr. Obama, who ultimately will render the final decision.

"The proposed Keystone XL project clearly serves the energy security interests of the United States by delivering necessary crude oil supplies from America's largest and most reliable trading partner America will need this oil for the foreseeable future and Canada is by any measure the best source," the company said in its letter. --Source
