    Montana oil spill renews worries over pipeline safety

    Montana oil spill renews worries over pipeline safety

    We should totally build an even BIGGER pipeline that runs right through America's breadbasket to make it easier for Canadian companies to send the worse oil through! /sarcasm

    What is your preferred method to transport oil? Trains derail, ships sink, trucks crash.

    My preferred method is for the US not to take the risk of contaminating our lands to transport CANADIAN oil.

    Because upgrading our aging infrastructure is bad idea... This leak was from an old pipeline, one without the leak preventing tech that new ones have. This event doesn't reflect the risk that Keystone has, since it's an old pipeline that needs replacement/upgrading and Keystone would be a state of the art pipeline. It's like telling your brother that he shouldn't buy a new car since all your 1974 Chrysler K-car does is break down and his new Ford F-150 will be just as bad.

    So is it just Canadian oil you want to boycott or all oil from all countries arriving on our shores by ships that can and do run aground and then transported by road or rail where spills also occur? My guess is you are so anti oil you would stop it all if you could.

    Most of which is coming from an naturally occurring environmental nightmare situation--tar sands. I find it ironic that environmentalist want to make it harder for Canada to mitigate an environmental nightmare because it involves oil.

    It's cute how you've conflated upgrading infrastructure and the US taking all of the risk transporting oil for a Canadian company through our land.

    Let me repost my point... because clearly you missed it.

    The article was doing the conflating by comparing a very old pipeline to Keystone. It was trying to make it sound like Keystone was just as risky as this old pipeline and that's just not the case. The solution to the problem of this pipeline leaking isn't to stop Keystone, it's to upgrade the pipeline. Fix the problem, instead of using it for political purposes.

    I read you loud and clear now. You are fine with the possibility of contaminating our land and sea with any other oil than Canadian oil. Makes no sense to me but if you hate Canada that bad so be it.
