And I’ve read that a couple of bh0’s big backers and are against the pipleline own a lot of railroad shares, thus profiting from moving the oil by train. thus their ‘environmental’ reasons are GREEN MONEY, not a green environmental.
The MSI site is the outside of a strong bend in the rail tracks.
Somebody should invent a system of underground pipes that can transport this type of product efficiently and safely.
COMMENTARY: An Obama-Buffett Connection Could Keep Crude Rolling by Rail
Ya know, I think some other folks thought the same thing, about 100 years ago.
This river flows into the Allegheny which flows into the Ohio. It is a high price to pay so that one of ObaMao’s bag men can continue to rake in money to ship by rail.
Here’s an idea: build a long skinny container that the oil can travel inside all the way from the well to the refinery.
Nah... makes too much sense.
It’s not the technology, it’s the people. A generation ago, this would have been feasible. But this type of job requires special skills. Skills that today’s generation of slackers and graduates in Women and Communist Studies don’t possess.
Thank you. Buffett, that ever Demo die hard for profiting first and criticizing republicans who would make the economy better for the little guys and gals.
Stupid mobil pipelines. Fixed pipelines are better. Usually don’t derail just cause of a little snow and a curvy track.
” - - - Thursday’s accident is the latest in a spate of crude oil train derailments that has prompted calls for more stringent rules regulating crude by rail, shipments of which have soared in recent years as pipelines fail to keep up with growing supply. - - -
From this key quote we can conclude the following:
1.) The problem: Pipelines have failed to keep up with growing supply.
2.) The solution to the problem: Enact more stringent rules for regulating crude by rail shipments.
All yuh gotta do is sit in a stuffy Congressional room and solve all of the Nation’s problems by just passing laws, regulations and holding press conferences!
I sure hope that all business leaders take notice, and stop learning all that technical stuff, and just ask your Congress Critter to pile on more Regulations!
My point exactly. ;-)
They don't derail near O's peeps.
...21 tank cars came off the track...
...2 of the derailed cars held liquefied petroleum gas...
...19 of the derailed cars held crude oil...
...4 of the 19 crude oil cars developed leaks...
...those leaks have all been plugged...
...between 3,000 and 4,000 gallons of oil was spilled...
...clean-up is already underway...
...there were no reports of any injuries...
...there were no reports of any fire...
Train probably owned by Buffet who stands to lose a lot of money if the Keystone Pipeline gets approved.
The Obama does not like them underground pipe thingies.
