That's a misleading article, failing to mention the fact that all the created jobs are temporary.

Everything is Possible.

But some things are more Probable than others.

On the Canada side of the pipeline, things are getting violent. The indigenous tribes started nonviolent protests, the cops shot them with rubber bullets and tear gas. Then cop cars started getting firebombed.

This is not going to end well for anyone.

Yes, because we should clearly listen to the guy who brought us Mission Accomplished.

Fuck you Dubya. Fuck you so much.
“I think the goal of the country ought to be ‘how do we grow the private sector?’” Bush told the crowd at Pittsburgh’s DUG East conference. “That ought to be the laser-focus of any administration. And therefore, once that’s the goal, an issue like Keystone pipeline becomes a no-brainer.”

“If private sector growth is the goal and Keystone pipeline creates 20,000 new private sector jobs, build the damn thing,” the former president urged, prompting a bust of applause from the crowd of oil and gas executives reportedly numbering in the thousands.
So much.

Also, when the pipeline is complete the jobs will just vanish. I know that happens with infrastructure projects, but if a road fixing project is finished, you can move it to another set of roads. You can't make a new pipeline, because it would be useless and redundant.

Everyone is a little bit insane. It makes the world so much more interesting!

[up]Technically, the job seems way too important to ever be finished, so maybe it WOULD manage to generate jobs.

Max Auffhammer: Why I Think Not Building Keystone XL Leaves a Billion Barrels of Bitumen in the Ground.

An analysis of the effects of the Pipeline and its constructive, at least as processing Tar Sands go. It mostly notes that delaying the pipeline reduces demand for the Tar Sand Oil. However, he notes that not building XL basically only prevents 50 days of oil supplies.

One of his final thoughts did strike me why President Obama's administration keeps blocking its construction is he's trying to buy time for renewables, which he has basically invested in over his entire presidency. (Though this is basically noted to be a non point.)
