In a move that will enrage climate change and environment activists, Trump has signed an executive order to proceed with the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines blocked by Barack Obama.


President Donald Trump has resurrected the controversial construction of two oil pipelines that his predecessor Barack Obama had blocked on environmental grounds in 2015.

On Tuesday, the new Republican president authorized both projects on the condition that American steel is used, in a move that he claimed would create "a lot of jobs - 28,000 jobs - great construction jobs."
The Obama administration stopped Keystone, which will carry crude oil from Canada to Texas along a 1,897km (1,178 miles) route, just over a year ago due to concerns over the damage such quantities of fossil fuels would do to the environment.

Meanwhile Dakota Access, an almost identical length pipeline which is planned to transport 470,000 barrels of crude oil a day across four states from North Dakota to Illinois, has attracted controversy not only because of the potential environmental impact but because it disturbs the land of the Sioux Native American people and will potentially contaminate their drinking water.
