Joe Biden is going to be the most Left-wing POTUS we have ever seen. His economic policies are going to be horrendous for America.
Alaska does resource development better than anyone else. Shipping our jobs, energy, & revenue overseas makes no sense. I joined @TeamCavuto yesterday to talk about these critical issues facing our state. https://t.co/YKND0wL9qY#akgov #Alaska #akoil

Biden ending Keystone pipeline would kill thousands of American jobs
By Fox News, January 19, 2021
The move could happen on President-elect Joe Biden’s first day in office, after the Trump administration spent four years trying to further construction of the $9 billion, 1,200-mile pipeline that would transport up to 830,000 barrels of crude oil daily from Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska.
An existing Keystone pipeline currently transports oil from Alberta to Illinois and Texas.
According to the Keystone XL website, the project, initially proposed more than a decade ago, would sustain about 11,000 U.S. jobs in 2021 – including 8,000 union jobs – and generate $1.6 billion in gross wages.
It is unclear how the Biden administration plans to address the job losses, but his $2 trillion clean energy infrastructure plan, with its goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, aims to “create millions of good-paying jobs that provide workers with the choice to join a union and bargain collectively with their employers,” according to his website.
The plan targets the creation of 1 million jobs within the auto industry; “millions” of jobs within the power sector; 1 million jobs in building construction; 250,000 jobs “plugging abandoned oil and natural gas wells” and more.
President Trump overturned President Barack Obama’s decision to block construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which for years has come under scrutiny from environmentalists and Democratic politicians.
“Building new infrastructure like the Keystone XL pipeline, which would result in millions of tons of new carbon emissions, just adds fuel to a fire that’s already burning down our house,” U.S. PIRG Environment Campaigns Director Matt Casale said in a Monday statement.
Casale added that if Biden cancels the Keystone XL permit to keep “fuel in the ground,” the president-elect will show us just how serious he was when he promised to take bold climate action.”
