The answer is “A,” the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The proposed pipeline would run from Canada, south through the U.S. to the Gulf of Mexico. Supporters say it would create jobs and allow the U.S. to be less dependent on unstable countries for oil. But opponents say it would hurt the environment and contribute to climate change.
