30,000 gallon spill from a train derail in Minnesota 3 days ago now another 84,000 spill in Arkansas on Saturday. Ocean spills are one thing but now its right in our neighborhood. Is this something we could get used to if/when construction of the pipeline XL happens?

OH sorry. well not all of them have failed. I should have been more specific. Solyndra is a good example though. And they were supposed to increase american jobs,so why are windmills being made for or in china?

Forgive me, but I'm missing your point. Are you saying that we have a way to transport billions of gallons of oil with a guarantee of no spills, and we should be using thatt instead?

Or, are you saying that we should stop our use of oil?

Or are you saying that Keystone is bad, and the rest of the pipelines are ok?

Two words. Holy fcuk!

I guess the only good that can come out of this is a heavy reminder about that bad.

Drilling and transporting oil is one of the most dangerous things humans do. Oil, like it or not, is also probably the most important resource used by modern society. Accident's are going to happen. I'd love to live in a totally green world, but when I look around my own house I see a lot of plastic. I still travel by car at least 5 times a week. I'm totally surrounded by petrol products.

We need Exxon but we should hold them accountable for any unnecessary harm they do. Oil is a necessary evil and should be exploited as safely and fully as possible until something better comes along.

Ever consider that oil companies will do anything in their power to stamp out renewable energy?

At what cost? At what cost?

Let's face it, new energy technology is being repressed. Could you imagine a thousand km2 of sensitive marsh and waterways getting polluted like this? What a disaster that would be. And let's be honest, when was the last time you heard on the news the gov was gonna spend tens of billions on new technology to get us out of this mess? But Yaaaay! we have the rover on mars digging up dirt.

CNN was reporting this morning, that the pipeline that blew/gushed was built in the 1940s.
If it was that old, maybe there should have been better monitoring?
Maybe something 70 years old should have been replaced before it blew?
How many other pipelines are that old?

Infrastructure problems........

Man, it pains to hear that a load of oil has spilled over nature.

It’s grim. All i can think of is some nugget head in a suit cringing at his own selfish will to allow crap like this to happen. Well ok, it might not be totally his fault but nature doesn't give a rats ass why it happened, its suffering no matter what and it’s ballsy to hear such news.
