    i just created this thread because i wondered what kind of responses would be suggested.

    Liberals who use oil but protest against oil developments strike me as off their rockers.
    But aren't you aware that reusable bags, bicycles, solar panels and bamboo toothbrushes are made out of sunshine and kisses?

    Only problem is that "if you got it a truck brought it" still applies. I guess that little part never gets considered by liberals does it?

    i will admit i don't support the pipeline, my views have been hardened as a response to the deepwater horizon disaster.

    that being said, i regret bringing this topic up, the partisan stupidity going around the forum got me hot under the collar.

    mods can this thread be taken down or sent to the basement.

    Liquid nitrogen would do little long term damage

    The nitrogen would dissipate and then the temperature of the oil would go back to normal

    A more effective method would be to destroy the pumping stations, or even better hack the pumping stations to increase the pressure and flow rate in the pipeline. The higher pressures could cause significant damage in the pipeline itself.

    Overall damage to a small portion of the pipeline is easily fixed in a short period of time. It would have to be damage to a significant portion of the pipeline to have any significant effects, and that is hard to do by small groups

    I'm sorry, in your OP you asked the question because you were interested in what kind of responses there would be.

    I think the responses stand for themselves from what I saw. But a specific answer to your question depends on facts which were not given in your original poll. In any such events (and the recent missing Malaysian flight is a good example) you have to wait for the facts before making a determination.

    Then the group is composed of dumbasses who will waste all of their resources to no significant effect.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    This makes me wonder 'What if I was King and my toilet got backed up by liquid nitrogen? Would I freeze my royal balls off?'

    Forcing higher pressure to damage pipelines or sabotaging the pumping stations would risk contamination of nearby ecosystems.
