of course, though, pipelines are so much more dangerous.

“Approximately 10 cars are fully engulfed resulting in heavy smoke in the area,” the Cass County sheriff said in a statement at 4:36 p.m., adding that local fire and hazardous material teams were battling the blaze. The sheriff said it was not yet clear how the collision had occurred.
Residents within 5 miles (8 km) to the south and east of Casselton were urged to evacuate to avoid contact with the smoke. Residents within 10 miles were asked to remain indoors.
Casselton City Auditor Sheila Klevgard said crews are pushing snow to contain the oil before it reaches a nearby creek.

While I agree pipelines are far safer some of the companies should not be
trusted with our economic wealfare. Norther Gate Way should not be built.
First the company building it does not have the confidence of British Columbians.
What did it for me was when they removed serveral islands from a promotion
video to have people believe it was an open route to the sea.
Kinder Morgan I have no problem with responsible company. My biggest beef
is we should not sell Asia natural resources so they can compete against us.
We should ensure ourselves and friendly governments reap the benefit of the
resources.

Than, not then. Than is used to compare, then is used for chronology.

SO you would rather we are restricted to a fickle US market that demands and receives a big cut from world prices because they are the only market we can serve? I say build the pipeline even if no oil ever flows through it just as a threat to the US.
I have worked in Douglas/ Ursla channel before and there is lots of room for tankers. You ever look at a map of BC? None of the islands and rocks are shown on it but no one complains. Except the dumb Yankees that try to use a BC road map to take their boats to Alaska. By the time they get to Pt. Hardy they are terrified and will pay any price for charts. Perhaps not so much now with all the new electronics but We take real charts along for when all that electronic $$hit breaks down.

With the relaxation of extraction regulations ( rape is the new green), in Mexico, the US probably doesn't need our oil. Bam Bam probably knew this was gonna happen and told Stevo to shove it...............or not. ?


Some say (globe and mail - nat. post) the world is awash in oil; totally surplus position.


And this is why gasoline prices have fallen to new highs, locally. Ain't free trade grand !!

Railroads would be much safer if railroaders ran them.

Does it matter which is safer. We are all complicit in raping the Earth who cares how we do it or who is hurt in the process?
Lots of empty talk to pass the time. Doesn't matter as long as we are comfy cozy.

No way, dude! The Earth, like, totally consented! She said "I want you to ram your hot, throbbing **** in my warm, moist ****!"

She's just mad because I didn't call the next day.

I agree. We should all be miserable, starving, and diseased!

After you, sir.

Yes. As long as humans are serviced nothing else matters. Seriously.
A few people have thought about doing things in a sustainable way but they are not the money holders of the world so the status quo remains.
