Completely agree with that, they have to mathematically.

I was just pointing out that in this particular case that tanker would have been on those tracks no matter how many pipelines we put in the ground.

How the oil gets to the refinery or from there to a smaller regional point is what most people were commenting on it seems. Rail is almost always the safest and most economical way for larger (but still small) end user shipments like this.

Here is what Conservatives need to do. Form a conservation group like the Sierra Club and go after everything the libs put in place that is killing people and wildlife.

Solar field killing birds? 100 million lawsuit. Train with fuel derails? 100 million lawsuit. Apply for government grants. Do everything the Sierra Club does.

Then when the government fights back, use the Sierra Club as an example and get their funding pulled.

The way to beat the left is to bankrupt them.

I support USA energy self sufficiency for economic and security.

If foreign corporations and countries are taking land (farm or otherwise) to bring energy to the USA, or putting Americans at risk, that low cost energy needs to stay in the USA, and not be shipped to China by global corporations looking for more profits.

This was imported from Canada. The US doesn’t come close to supplying enough oil to meet our domestic demands.

Note the media always use gallons to pump the numbers. The standard crude oil measure is the stock tank barrel (42 gallons). The total spilled is under 100 barrels. Just not a big enough number to hype, so they used 3000-4000 gallons.

They tell us that use of Canadian oil is part of the plan for US energy self sufficiency, and the economic advantages of lower energy prices. If that’s the case I can support eminent domain as being in the national interest. However if the plan is to use the USA and eminent domain so foreign corporations with ties to politicians, can use the USA as a conduit to China, then I strongly oppose seeing Americans having their land taken and devalued.

Americans have been undercut by lying politicians, corporatists and bankers with “ free trade” enough that I do not trust them. Some will do anything to sell out the USA, while patriots willingly give up their lives. I don’t trust the bxstards.

I've have never seen a claim that imported oil creates US energy self sufficiency.

the plan is to use the USA and eminent domain so foreign corporations with ties to politicians, can use the USA as a conduit to China, then I strongly oppose seeing Americans having their land taken and devalued.

Those are not the only choices of options. The reality is it will deliver oil to American refineries for jobs in the US. It also means less oil imported from OPEC.

Are derailments a routine event or are trains carrying oil more susceptible?

I would say more routine than most folks realize when looking at all rail traffic.

Having oil on board make more news.
