They just need to get a new slogan, like this T-shirt that was popular some years back:

200 million years ago a dinosaur died and decomposed and became oil which was then drilled out of the ground and refined and shipped off to a power generation station and burned to generate the electricity which powers your computer into which you wrote that post.

That dinosaur died for that post. That stupid, farking post.

It's just oil.
Oil is as natural as air and water.

Johnsnownw: The issue is that the pipeline has been there for 60+ years, and that the most detailed look of the pipline to date, won't be able tell if there are cracks in the line. Yet, we're supposed to take the companies word that the line is sound.

You should find that disconcerting...shiat doesn't last forever.


Lost oil=lost money.  You'd better believe the energy companies make sure every gallon that goes in comes out in the right place, because if it doesn't, the almighty (institutional) shareholders will have a fit.

Tatterdemalian: eatin' fetus: Sounds like they are being aggressive about maintenance to me. What's your point?

The point is that we need to start generating all our energy with trans-warp drives and make everything that's currently made from any petroleum distillate out of marijuana instead. If you don't do this you are murdering the planet and will be hunted down and killed as soon as Obama decides he's tired of you people poisoning the world, or the next time Putin disses him.


UsikFark: Who cares, it's done, end of story, will probably be fine

I hate to burst your bubble man, but that thing ain't leaking. It is not in their best interest to hide a 800psig (low estimate) pipeline leak for anybody involved. They would know if it was leaking in a second, and immediately have a contractor out to fix it. Even if they were the evil, mustache twirling overlords you think they are, they still wouldn't want the damn hassle of dealing with the fallout of a leak they just ignored.

The sickest thing is that most of you people picking up the shill line about "railroad is more dangerous" (implying pipelines are safe) aren't even getting paid. And to those who are: ask for more, there's plenty in that industry.

Oh what is my alternative?

Electric vehicles. (Reclaim a forklift motor and build your own.) Biodiesel. Nuclear. Space based solar. Hell, overthrow Bolivia if ya gotta (to get all that lithium). Just stop destroying my atmosphere. Fracking and tar sands are farking stupid but it's where the easy money is so that's why it's done. Just don't shill for it if you aren't the one getting paid, because we'll all be paying for it soon enough.

super_grass: It's not a new pipeline, it's an 60+ year old one that has yet to cause trouble. Maintain it properly and move on.

Alternatives like rail can't be that much safer.


No shiat. Ever try running a train across a lake?

That pipeline begins and ends in Canada, and 23 million gallons pass through it every day? We ought to be creating our own "leak"  in which 10% of the product is missing every day.

A bad idea Subby? I can't think of anything more entertaining than seeing the Great Lakes literally on fire so I don't know what you're whining about.
