Courageous Whistleblower Wants You To Know: The Keystone Pipeline is a Lemon (VIDEO)

January 8, 2012
By Mitchell S. Gilbert



In their zeal to promote their personal investment portfolios and serve their godfathers in the private sector, Republicans would like the American people to believe two lies about the Keystone Pipeline that is intended to transport synthetic crude oil and diluted bitumen (“dilbit”) from northern Canada to the United States:

Lie #1: The pipeline will create 20,000 or more jobs. The truth: The U.S. State Department estimates it will only create 6,000 jobs and those jobs will only exist during the construction phase.

Lie #2: The construction of the pipeline will be in accordance with the highest standards of the industry. Keystone will not pose any danger to the environment or the communities that it will pass through.

After losing his job for complaining about shoddy construction practices, Klink shared his concerns in a courageous op-ed piece.

1. Video?

I have heard bad things about the pipeline as well, however that could be a video of my backyard for all I know. We need better video than that.

2. Re: Video?

dcmfox,

I am the owner of the video that was posted on YouTube. We took additional footage that day on a separate camcorder that has not yet been uploaded to YouTube. If you wish, I can create a video from the footage on the other camcorder, which includes a shot of both the pumping station and the slough from the "Keystone I Spill Cleanup" video, and post that to YouTube as well.
