Most Americans say ‘yes’ to Keystone pipeline
“A few thousand two-year jobs and 35 permanent jobs are only going to solve our country’s unemployment problem if this pipeline has mystical powers of some kind,” said Jane Kleeb, executive director of Bold Nebraska, an activist group standing against the pipeline. “Farmers and ranchers along the route will need all the magic out there when a spill happens, since our own government does not have a solution to clean up tar sands.”
Regardless of public opinion, politicians appear to be set to approve the pipeline. Earlier this month a bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate would give Congress the power to approve the pipeline. See, “Senators introduce bill to approve Keystone XL pipeline.”
