Donald Trump rode to the White House promising to bring back jobs for working-class Americans. But dismantling federal efforts to address climate change will make it harder to deliver on that promise.
The US State Department says the Keystone XL pipeline will create 50 permanent jobs, despite Donald Trump’s previous estimate of 28,000. The US President’s administration has approved the programme and subsequently ended nine years of debate over a project that has divided the climate change debate. Confusion however has swirled around the exact number of jobs that will be created.
