35. This spill was Canadian tar sands crude, nearly impossible to clean up.

http://insideclimatenews.org/news/20130330/exxon-confirms-ruptured-pipeline-ark-carried-canadian-dilbit
The 20-inch Pegasus pipeline runs 858 miles from Patoka, Ill. to Nederland, Texas. Engelmann said the line was carrying Wabasca Heavy crude from western Canada when it ruptured.

Wabasca Heavy is a type of diluted bitumen, or dilbit, from Alberta's tar sands region, according to the Canadian Crude Quality Monitoring Program, an industry source that provides data on different types of Canadian oil.

Because dilbit contains bitumena type of crude oil that's heavier (50 to 70 times heavier!)than most conventional crude oilit can be harder to clean up when it spills into water. A 2010 spill in Michigan, which released a million gallons of dilbit in the Kalamazoo River and has cost pipeline operator Enbridge more than $820 million, continues to challenge scientists and regulators as they work on removing submerged oil from the riverbed.


A 2010 spill in Kalamazoo, MI, has STILL not been cleaned up, despite monumental efforts. This link is to a report one year after (2011), and explains why tar sands oil is so much more difficult, in part impossible, to clean up. These folks in Arkansas can kiss that street goodbye. No home insurer or mortgage broker will touch those properties.

He asked people to download the pictures because the news in that area would pull them soon. Just like the BP photos, removed as if it never happened. This is good because he uploaded it and the content belongs to him. We should work to see these get national attention because the news no longer works in the public interest in any way whatsoever!

not to worry. THIS one isn't out in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, where a lot of people don't live.

For-Profit is fine, as long as it ISN'T encroaching our preceptions of "The American Dream". With the posting of that video, that little, small-town, All-American-neighborhood just got Public Support to file the biggest goddamned Class-Action lawsuit in the History of America, as far as I'm concerened, and Exxon's PR people probably KNOW IT.

Even if it doesn't come to that, I bet EVERY ONE of those homowners now thinks Solar Panels and Chevy Volt's would have been a better way to go.

Exxon's going to be well and truly fucked on this one, Thanks Internet=)

EXXON Valdez spill in Alaska - it was gut wrenching and galvanized the public to demand changes.

That didn't last for long as the Koch brothers kept on working their way into the body politic and the RW got hold of the mainstream media.

43. henry ford built electric cars!

chk out 'who killed the electric car' documentary etc....it mentions that several companies were building electric cars way back when. Indeed, the electric forklift has been a staple of industry for decades. Unfortunately, the oil industry needed a market, and ... well you get the pic! Btw, in 1890's one could travel from New yerk city to florida on CITY TRANSIT TRAINS! and they were all private enterprise!
If we knew the truth about what the moneypigs have done to create easy profits (from oil found in public grounds!) there'd be a goddam revolution. Oh wait. THERE was a revolution! In 1796! and again in 1917! but we crushed them working fellers, yes we did!

Some of us don't have a choice. I would LOVE to have a Prius, but it's way beyond my income.

I couldn't even afford the payments.

Furthermore, if there were any real impetus to develop a public transportation system in this country, I would certainly use it wherever possible.

There are over 43,000 miles of pipeline under water, in the Gulf alone.

And 50,686 individual bore holes or wells, in the Gulf alone.

Some of this infrastructure is over 60 years old.

Story about his work pushing the pipeline. Sorry the story is print only. I checked for a link and haven't found one. I had just watched this video this morning and then walked to the mailbox to get the Sunday paper and saw the story. Poor sad Republican happy little story washed away in a flood of crude oil.

People need to do that across the nation. We have ghost town south of where I live here where there was such a leak forty years ago. God knows how many more there are. It's time to nationalize all the oil in this country. It's a national resource that is sometimes going to foreign producers and definitely to a few Wall Street speculators. It should be owned by the people and the profits used for the people. The people can also regulate it so those spills and pollution become fewer and rare.

Rant On:

You know the environmental movement was kickstarted in the 1970's when the countries awareness level was raised during the Cayahoga river fire... Rivers burning made for great publicity in favor of environmental issues...... It is way past time that the national consciousness be reawakened to environmental concerns... If images from the Exxon Valdez Oil disaster the BP oil mega disaster and now rivers of oil flooding neighborhoods won't do it, that I don't know what will....

Will it take a great sinkhole collapse, of an entire community thousands dead, where fracking causes such unstable earth that it swallows up whole towns?

Will it take a lake or river exploding from the build up of natural gas polluting the water?

Will it take the Island nation of the Maldives to disappear forever into the ocean because of sea level rise due to ice cap melt? Or a mega Hurricane produced from the overheated earth?

Sadly the earth has been warning us for quite sometime that something is about to give....but you know now that I am on this tangent, what really irks me is the fact that so called conservatives at least those in the middleclass, should be natural supporters of environmental issues, they clamour on about the debt and leaving a nation of debt to our children and theirs but what about the earth leaving a dead or dying planet seems like it should trump the debt IMHO....

ENOUGH!...

Rant Off...
