(Neb.)-Billionaire Investor To Join Pipeline Foes Against Keystone XL Project

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/12/2013 08:37 AM
     LINCOLN, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A billionaire investor who has spent more than $2 million fighting the Keystone XL pipeline is traveling to Nebraska to meet with local opponents of the project.
 
     Asset manager and philanthropist Tom Steyer will help dedicate a barn that opponents are building in the project's expected path.
 
     Opponents are continuing to urge President Barack Obama to deny a federal permit for the pipeline, saying the project doesn't serve U.S. energy interests and would contribute to global warming. Supporters say the pipeline is by far the safest way to transport the oil.
 
     Steyer is scheduled to speak at the dedication on Sept. 22, at 3 p.m. The solar- and wind-powered barn will be located about 15 miles northwest of York.
