The Keystone block didn't stop us

Blue Virginia highlights an Oklahoma oil man who says the Keystone XL pipeline isn't needed now.
I wonder if they read the whole story.
Why is Keystone unnecessary now?
The oil industry has worked around the Democrats' block of their project.
Hamm said his company, which had planned to use Keystone to ship some of its North Dakota crude, is already using other pipelines for half of its oil. And the percentage is growing.
“We’re supporting other pipelines out there, we’re not waiting on Keystone. Nobody is,” said Hamm, a former energy adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, who made a vast fortune as an early investor in North Dakota’s booming Bakken oil shale region. “That thing … needed action on it six years ago. I just think it’s too late and we need to move on.”
Liberals think they can keep the tar sands in the ground if they block Keystone XL.
The crude oil flows and their protests remind ineffective.
