Think about it. The XL will be 10 times bigger with hotter oil going faster. So your oil spill will basically sent cannon shots of oil when it bursts.

It's likely to have problems when the oil hits the seal

Once again this has nothing to do with Keystone. Keystone is safe and effective. Keystone will bring oil to refineries so that gas prices will go down. It is un-american to report that the refined products will be shipped from the gulf coast to China and India. Everyone knows that all crude refined in the United States is for domestic use only. Exxon is as American as Shell or BP. Exxon supports the troops. Exxon provides millions of jobs right here in your neighborhood. The only people who oppose the Keystone pipeline are crazy enviro-terrorists and Al  Quidia.

God Bless America

One weird trick to deal with oil spills.

skantea: Christian Bale: an Exxon official confirmed the pipeline was "transporting a heavy form of crude from the Canadian tar sands region." Specifically, it has been identified as Wabasca Heavy, Lisa Song writes, "which is a type of diluted bitumen, or dilbit, from Alberta's tar sands region" although you won't hear any Exxon folks calling it tar sands.


I love clear, unambiguous reporting that doesn't leave you confused or saying "uh, wtf?"

Unfortunately it's getting more and more scarce.

Journalist don't know anything about history, science, geology, etc.  So they can't instruct us.  What's worse is they don't have much motivation to learn seeing as how the public doesn't want to hear it.

Yeah, I don't want Canada's pipeline cruising over our bread basket so they can put their oil for sale on the open market. Neither does salon, apparently.

Build it over your own damn precious land, Canada.

kazikian: Also... How hard can it be to build a pipeline that doesn't leak? Or rather, one that contains its leaks? Of course the sort of countermeasures I can envision (like double-wall pipes) cost money.


You should talk to the guys at Kramerica Industries. They're working on a bladder system.

But... But... eleventy-billion jobs and all the oil will be American! Cheap gas! Or something.

HotWingAgenda: And I just checked CNN, and there is f*ck-all reporting about any oil spill. The mainstream media only reports white girl kidnappings and celebrity scandals.


You're not mad enough to suit me.  Go read this:

Who's footing the bill for the cleanup? The government has an Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund that companies which transport oil must pay into. But, as it turns out, the bitumen that Exxon was transporting in its pipeline isn't oil by government standards.

Fark everything about that.  The next time anyone complains about businesses having to deal with "too much regulation" when it comes to environmental standards, I want them crotchspeared with a rolled-up copy of this report.
