Robert Redford: Keystone XL and Jobs: Just More Pipe Dreams

They want you to believe it's about jobs, but that's not what the facts bear out. Is there anything more cynical than Big Oil and its Washington allies playing on heartland hardship by pretending a dangerous tar sands pipeline can put folks back to work?
