On out actress Daryl Hannah she protest of the pipeline in front of the White House.
And it appears the White House listen she joins us now on the phone from Los Angeles well.
-- did you actually talked to the president about any this.
Now -- intent to the it.
But I was listening to what did you comments -- about national security and I don't think there's any bigger threat to national security and the pipeline that goes to our biggest -- for.
Which is not replenishing -- which provides water to three quarters -- this country's food and grant that.
Farms you know which is our ranching and and and arms farmland -- a lot freshwater from millions of people and if you look on Wikipedia you concealed list of the pipeline disasters in just 2010 and eleven and they are -- on for ever we.
Catalog of Wikipedia today -- blacked out but the fact the fact is -- that that folks in the whose backyard this pipeline is going to be laid.
Are satisfied now the folks in Nebraska which first were opposed to it because it did go right over the -- -- they think that the new moved its life is okay -- -- That's -- doesn't deal with you that's actually not not the -- -- -- -- governor -- -- -- -- -- -- spent time with many of the people who live.
Not only that the combination but often many of the Nebraska to distance or having their land.
Threatened by eminent domain.
That opinion is that we're looking at short term picture press about that they that they any oil independent study what the jobs.
Are going to be is that supposedly.
Wildly exaggerated there may be a hundred full time jobs and that's it because.
How well -- what are gonna set a hundred.
Yet I've got hot yes immediately and activities they weren't there and I don't you just can't.
Do that I spoke to the CEO of jobs -- candidate I'd like he has a PR IRS -- hear her play cards with a hundred people that I Automask yeah.
Not tighten up permanent jobs that would -- they're gonna be temporary construction jobs.
But that the wildly exaggerated and that clean energy sector produces three times more jobs than the dirty energy like.
Wait equipment or let's say clean energy so -- and where exactly was the model of clean energy projects for the president.
-- -- Look at.
They look at the -- clean energy produces three times more jobs -- dirty energy we need to move into self sufficiency.
And national security.
Which it would be nice if that was very good it's not ready now there -- ever everybody's who looks -- to this as and it by the way to solar industries crashed over the past year.
Stocks have gone down 70% I mean it's it's in very desperate straits right now the fact is.
The solar industry and when they're not ready to take over and in the meantime we need oil we need gas we need the pipeline.
We don't need -- pipelines.
We're already processing that tar and oil and the midwest -- take jobs that way from the mid west.
This is just trying to get -- boiled down to the Gulf of Mexico so it can be shipped off and put up for sale which is like gas prices will increase.
So it's absolutely disingenuous for -- to suggest them.
Hold on -- because dam is a lot of people that as the governor of the state of the brats who initially was against it now he's in favor with the changes.
They -- is also the union supporters of the president a big.
Chunk of his support of his western dress like that are absurdly wrong on the jobs numbers.
Dissent since last year -- their Citizens United -- acting C the donations from oil companies to politicians.
To have a positive.
-- take unfair.
And their plans has gone up.
A hundred -- it is now in the hundreds of millions of dollars in terms of donations to politicians.
From the oil companies so it's.
Really important to look at what the motivations are what I'm talking about is sustainability as competition -- -- that's what we need to move to -- into the country.
Efficient -- sustainability.
-- suffered a terrible once again you say I don't know -- hundred jobs could be created by this the unions who are no friends of the Republicans.
Are saying in fact that your dead wrong and that that a 1010.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That lie and told them that they are going to be more jobs and their -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You don't think these union leaders are savvy enough to figure out what the truth is and isn't it.
Only been two.
One that non oil funded report.
On jobs from this pipeline and it shows that it will not create new jobs on average because it will increase gas prices and cost jobs in the midwest.
All right well listen couldn't congratulations you did lobbying very effectively because apparently the president.
Was listening to Daryl Hannah please come back -- see us again thank you.
