Compare that with the number of jobs the $500-million Downeast LNG project claims they will create — just 78 permanent direct jobs and 253 permanent indirect jobs — totalling 331 permanent jobs (according to the DeLNG website on 2009 May 19).
Clean energy would produce 8,500 jobs for that same investment — 8,169 more jobs than Downeast LNG!
