Apparently they approved a pipeline to be built to run through Nebraska from Canada. But there is a lot of protest right now.

Apparently there is a huge amount of CO2 released from the production of crude oil from the sands. Some in the US are even trying to say its not as good quality as drilled oil. But that may just be their scare tactic.

The WSJ had an article that some Oil Companies are holding off funding further projects in the Sands until further evaluation. Obama right now wants a conclusive environmental study before he approves the pipeline from Canada.

Do you think this news affects the future of the Oil Sands? or is this more political news by the media to cause a bit of a stir?

This controversy is old news, I'll elaborate more on it later, actually I think I've already touched this topic in this thread but anyway, if you Americans don't want to buy oil from your best friends up in Canada and prefer to buy it from the arsehole nations in the middle east such as Saudi Arabia and other amicable OPEC nations like Venezuela, fill your boots. We'll send our oil to China to India where they don't play petty politics and have to placate idiotic environmental voters.

Of course there's more to it than that, a lot of it borders on conspiracy theories, but like I say, I'll write more about it later.

If you're interested in the subject I recommend Ezra Levant's book "Ethical Oil".

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
