Guy Guerrero’s letter, “Keystone XL pipeline needed” (in the Feb. 6 edition of the Daily Journal), is wrong on virtually every point.
Building the pipeline will create jobs only until the pipeline is completed in less than two years. Only 35 permanent jobs would be created. And Keystone oil will not “make the United States energy independent.” All the oil will be shipped to China and other Asian markets where the profits are higher.
We’ll be destroying our environment for nothing. Stop the Keystone pipeline.
