Cornell: Keystone XL a net job killer

Cornell is not called the “Big Red” for nothing.

Cornell’s Global Labor Institute says that the Keystone XL (tar sands) pipeline could be net job killer because:

By helping to lock in US dependence on fossil fuels, Keystone XL will impede progress toward green and sustainable economic renewal and will have a chilling effect on green investments and green jobs creation. The green economy has already generated 2.7 million jobs in the US and could generate many more. [Emphasis added]

But even the Washington Post has given up on green jobs.

And — this may be news to the comrades at the Global Labor Institute — Big Labor is finally figuring out that Big Green is its Big Enemy.

  1. What kind of neo-Luddite Frankenomics is this guy using? Since when has more jobs to provide the same benefit been a good thing?
