For the record, I was asking tecoyah about the ND spill that occurred, which he was referencing, and in his reply to my question, he then shifted to quote something on the Yellowstone spill, a different spill, in a different state. Now other than to deceive, why would someone do that?
Now, with a cursory google search, I found this in the first link:
Now, I can only speculate that he found the same information, and the supposed disastrous spill he was trying to pin on TransCanada was 300 cubic yards of displacement. Anyone that has been in anything aggregate knows that equals about three tri axle dump trucks, a bucket loader, and reclamation crew about one day to clean up. Maybe that is why he tried to pull this fast one.Keystone Pipeline restarts following oil spill in North Dakota
May 16, 2011
By Phaedra Friend Troy
TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) (TSX: TRP) has restarted its massive Keystone Pipeline system following an above-ground oil spill that occurred at a pump station in Sargent County, North Dakota on May 7.
The Keystone pipeline was shut-in within minutes of the release when a drop in pressure within the line was detected.
The oil release happened at the Ludden Pump Station, where 30 personnel have been on-location to contain the escaped oil. Three hundred of the 500 spilled barrels of oil have been recovered, and three hundred cubic yards of contaminated soil will be removed and replaced with clean soil and gravel.
The oil spill was caused by a damaged three-quarter-inch fitting, and TransCanada has re-inspected all similar fittings at all of its pump stations in the United States and Canada, installing stronger fittings where appropriate.
Local and federal regulatory agencies were notified of the incident.
"TransCanada has taken this incident very seriously," said Russ Girling, TransCanada's president and CEO. "We have fully communicated details regarding the incident and our corrective actions to our U.S. regulator PHMSA in ensuring the steps we have taken will enable us to safely re-start the pipeline."

The government will often get into these programs, such as controlling population, saving trees, curbing global resources or funding new sources of energy, and use fear and shame to accomplish their ends. The ends are raiding the public purse.
They will easily claim that their mission is to save humanity in any number of ways but, as usual, it's all about money and power.
Let creative entrepreneurs risk their money, and there are many prepared to do that. But the politicians - and this really shouldn't need restating - are often dishonest. Yet despite this overwhelming evidence against them there are still those who give them credence. It is a mystery why this is so, but it was ever thus.

Yes, in actuality I suppose I was (though not intentionally), Any mock came about BECAUSE I pointed out the lack of research, and thus infomed and educated debate. I do not pretend n my debate style...nor do I intend to fail in my arguments, That others decide to forgo study of a topic is of benefit to me.
Great, another that believes they are superior to the rest of humanity....I have little use for that nonsense. Tell you what, why don't you just talk like a regular person, instead of someone that sounds like they are constantly talking down, or condescending to speak to the regular people?
That way maybe we can have a normal conversation.
