The U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched a new initiative, the Partnership to Fuel America, which will lobby, and litigate, to ensure that TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL oil sands pipeline from Canada to Texas receives federal and state approvals and is actually built. Meanwhile, the environmental activist group is setting up international climate change rallies in September, including in Washington, D.C., to oppose TransCanada's Keystone XL project. The group is also rallying public support for reducing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, the level considered safe by climate scientists. Meanwhile, the House passed a bill (H.R. 1938) July 26 calling for a decision by Nov. 1, but it will not be taken up by the Democratic-controlled Senate.
