Rachel Maddow Rips Kinder Morgan Claim That Oil Spills Create Jobs

Buried in its 15,000-page submission to Canada’s National Energy Board was Kinder Morgan’s observation that its proposal to triple the size of its Trans Mountain pipeline would create jobs, jobs, jobs—in oil spill response and clean-up.
Maddow’s response: “Turn that frown upside down, oil-soaked neighbourhood: you can get a job cleaning it up if you just have the right attitude…We’ll make it worth your while. That is seriously what Kinder Morgan is arguing to the freaking Canadian government about why they should be allowed to triple the capacity of their pipeline.”
