    That practice of breaking up the pipeline into separate waterway crossings allows it to avoid a project-specific analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), says Doug Hayes, a staff attorney for the Sierra Club. Last year, the Sierra Club filed a lawsuit in D.C. federal court claiming that the Army Corps of Engineers approved the pipeline without adequate environmental review or public notice.
    ..typical of republican legislators so often wanting to "break into pieces" good legislation (too many examples to list - immigration reform as but one of many) so they can turn it upside down and backwards to achieve the opposite of the original intent.

    Thx FishOutofWater

    P.S. and then there is also this: the Carbon Tracker Study
