Nat’l Wildlife Fed’n: TransCanada Inflates Job Claims 10x
It’s one thing for jobs estimates from different sources to be off by a few percentage points, but a new fact sheet out from National Wildlife Federation shows that TransCanada’s estimates for jobs created by Keystone XL are higher than the State Department’s … by a full order of magnitude. They also generally fail to mention that in-state job creation looks to be more like 10-12% of the total. Optimism is great, guys. Making up your numbers, not so much.
