Business Council says "Keystone makes no sense for America"

"Keystone makes no economic sense for America," American Sustainable Business Council says Keystone pipeline benefits are embellished 

A coalition of businesses is the first such group to denounce the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL oil pipeline and is urging President Obama to reject the project and turn the nation's focus to alternative and renewable energy.
The American Sustainable Business Councidisputes Keystone's job numbers and energy security claims that most other business organizations tout when discussing the project.

"Once we take into account the true cost of oil including subsidies, environmental damage and military costs, oil is far more expensive than the alternatives. The best thing we can do for the American economy, and for American businesses as a whole, is to wean ourselves from oil as quickly as possible."
