Keystone XL NOT a Big Job Creator

Studies NOT conducted by TransCanada, the company wanting to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline Republicans in Congress have pushed through for expedited review with a payroll tax cut bill, show that the climate-change-disaster-of-a-project would create between 5000 and 6000 temporary jobs (State Department Study) or only 500 to 1,400 temporary jobs but that the long-term result could be that it would actually COST the U.S. jobs, meaning, take jobs away from us (Cornell).

    No, it’s not just correlation. There are over 10 lines of evidence that cause-and-effect relationships are happening. There is over a century of research on the matter, using nearly every scientific method out there. And they all point to the same outcome.
