People throw around the word "toxic" without really understanding what it means.

Then you have no problem with Apache dumping the effected dirt in your back yard?
We have a nice volunteer Apache...he likes "PRODUCED WATER"!!!!

the amount of denial going on around these spills is just getting worse, especially with all of the political interests in the new line they still want built. just like translink's initial over-expansion and a lack of adequate maintenance it will just run it all into the ground...

"He said some band members believe the pipeline had been leaking since the winter, but no one noticed it until earlier this month."


What, these idiots don't monitor the pipeline? No profit in it I guess....


“There are indications that the spill occurred earlier, during the winter season, but due to ice and snow it wasn’t discovered.”


You would think that these greedy destroyers of life would have some sort of system that would alert to a potential leak, maybe loss of pressure? I am not an expert on pipeline science but considering technology today, that's a no brainer.

Why in the hell isn't this required by law? Oh that's right, they own the carpetbaggers who write the laws. It sickens me how these people are allowed to destroy this planet. There is no end to this madness.

One of these days Earth is going to shake all of us humans off of it like fleas. ~$heopleNation

For every action there is a reaction.
Cause and Effect are never separate.

Toxicity


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the scientific term. For other uses of toxicity and toxic, see Toxicity (disambiguation).

The skull and crossbones is a common symbol for toxicity.
Toxicity is the degree to which a substance can damage an organism. Toxicity can refer to the effect on a whole organism, such as an animal, bacterium, or plant, as well as the effect on a substructure of the organism, such as a cell (cytotoxicity) or an organ such as the liver (hepatotoxicity). By extension, the word may be metaphorically used to describe toxic effects on larger and more complex groups, such as the family unit or society at large.
