  •  Construction union; pitches to: (6+ / 0-)

    The Keystone Cons are inflating up the number of jobs building the pipeline will create, which is the choice of working and poisoning yourself and the planet, or not working and starving. (And somebody else will probably build it anyway.)

    It's not the only choice though.

    There's plenty of jobs, probably a lot more, in putting up wind turbines and building the smart power grid to connect them - and the long term jobs in servicing them all. None of which is a health risk or is bad for the planet, certainly not the way exploiting the dirtiest oil on the planet would be.

    The construction and energy field unions should be looking at that as the real choice - and so should our political leaders.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
