TransCanada Inspector: Keystone Pipeline A ‘Lemon’

Yes, as Teddy Partridge of FDL reports, civil engineer Mike Klink really did say that. He really did use the word “lemon,” and Klink, who was not surprisingly fired from his job, is seeking Department of Labor whistleblower protection. From Klink’s statement, published last Saturday in the Nebraska JournalStar.com:

Despite its boosters’ advertising, this project is not about jobs or energy security. It is about money. And whenever my former employer Bechtel, working on behalf of TransCanada, had to choose between safety and saving money, they chose to save money.

There you have it, from the horse’s mouth. Please read the rest; it’s been a long day, and I don’t have time and energy to transcribe what can be learned much better from the original source.
