There are more jobs that could be created in sustainable energy. But of course that would require investing in r+d, education, and infrastructure. The pipeline does nothing but help the US with a destructive addiction to hydrocarbons. It doesn't advance them, it puts them further behind, while threatening to devastate poorer countries facing drought, instability, and starvation thanks to climate change. And that can only set everyone back as well. There's a pretty clear path that serves the 99%, and that path continually gets clouded by double-speak and baseless fears. It's sad.
