What would Keystone XL look like as a human being? Probably pretty much how he’s portrayed in this video from the Post-Carbon Institute: a spectacularly douchey dudebro who can’t take no for an answer.

The only thing that would make this video better? If it ended with Keystone XL heading next door, where a man in a suit and a flag lapel pin furtively welcomed him in. Or possibly if the Enbridge guy was pissing on a duck.
