Kevin, Would you want it running through your yard leaking oil into your well?

Is this leaking of which you speak a problem?

When the leak occurs in an aquifer my answer would have to be yes.
Does such a leak happen a lot – you seem to know a lot about this stuff.
And you seem to know very little about pipelines. They leak all the time. Trying reading online … you will find endless news articles on pipelines that leaked for extended periods of time before they were detected. Enbridge for one … has a reputation for being slow to respond to such occurances. But people don’t seem to care unless it happens on their land or it effects their water supply.

devilschild (self-admitted econut), pipelines do not leak all the time. That they do is just your exaggerated opinion. Do they sometimes leak, sure they do, all the time, not so much.
Econut’s should live their life sans oil and leave the rest of us alone.

Sounds good to me. The mess will be on your conscious then instead of mine.

Consider me an econut then … because we know this oil is headed to China and India. They aren’t building the Keystone Pipeline to lower gas prices in the US. And all the talk of creating jobs is total BS. With the loss of trucking jobs we will be lucky if it ends up being a wash. I’m not against the pipeline. I just hate being lied to by politicians.

The price of energy is set by world wide markets. It goes to the highest bidder, as it should.

Then run the pipeline through Canada and not the US, as it should be. Tar sand oil is extremely gritty and corrosive. Pipelines that were expected not to have any problems for five years are seeing them in just a few months.

Build it through Canada. Except BC won’t let them.
And the Canadian Natives don’t want it on their land either…so let’s use the US as a cesspool. I understand truck traffic is hard on roadways and the communities. But taking 500 trucks off the roads means a loss of trucking jobs. They spout that building the Keystone XL pipeline is a job creator but it isn’t. It’s all part of the scam to get this dirty oil on the global market.

This isn’t the song you were singing when you blamed Obama for high gas prices. Actually, I’m glad you have been taking my comments to heart.
