The Devil's Excrement

Ruptured Canadian Pipeline

 ~ This could never happen in the US, right?

Alberta oil pipeline spill


No, it only happens in other countries. Like Canada. Why should anyone be a scaredy-cat on something like Keystone XL just because spills happen all the time? They're so routine there's even an international conference on oil spills.

Proponents of pieplines would have us believe spills are just a minor detail. Indeed.

Notice how the jet of environment-destroying oil has pushed the pipeline sideways. Now imagine that displacement causing it to rupture completely. Unlike in the Gulf of Mexico, Big Oil will not be able to hide it with "dispersants". How much disaster should we court?
