A federal appeals court recently sent a pipeline approval back to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, asking FERC to consider the greenhouse-gas effects of the product the pipelines will move as part of its environmental impact. Will this ruling change the way pipelines are permitted in the U.S.?

It would be nice for those pushing for these "in the pipe" reviews to remember that the stuff in the pipeline replaces the stuff being transported by tanker and rail from elsewhere. I don't think FERC (or the NEB in Canada) is remembering this fact in adding these reviews. Denying a pipeline because what it carries, when consumed, will release greenhouse gases doesn't magically eliminate the demand or release of the GHG, it just changes the transportation method.
