Remember people, things like this are nothing to pay attention to - the real scourge to the environment are those bird killing wind turbines and tortoise shading solar panels. You've been warned!

Kind of hard to hide this type of ethanol plant in ND.  The nearest tree is in Minnesota.

No. It missed Fargo by about 25 miles.

I can picture a "trouble brewing" panel just prior to the actual disaster.

Good luck to everyone in that area. Yikes.

I see you've snerted for me, but I'm going to snert nonetheless.

It's well on its way.

FTFA: The temperature at the scene is -2C.

I'm going to have to dispute that. My assessment is that the temperature at the scene is "Holy farking shiat my skin is melting GET BACK GET BACK!"

That's because it is a myth. This was obviously a false flag. Something something sheeple something.

Interesting video of METHANOL (not ethanol, I know) tanker burning (invisible until air crew switches to thermal imagery). Explosion at 1:26, just after firefighters retreat.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a3MD5s0mKc
 
2013-12-30 08:29:17 PM
for any who care the train is likely owned and operated by the Burlington noirthern and santa fe railroad.

You are just wrong. But spills are not as exciting to the tv generation you senile elderly people belong to. You ignore real problems and think erection pills are scientific progress at its best. That's the two things you know: explosions are the cause of and solution to all of life's problems, and in between explosions you have dick pill ads.

Can't wait until your generation retires so science can finally fix things.

Sure, the good kind of ethanol. Not the stuff wastefully burned by horseless carriages as they whiz around at dozens of miles per hour.

Man, I would love an ethanol pipeline into my home.

I read something recently about the tar sands oil being super volatile due to gas content. Tanker explosions waiting to happen...
