Pipelines are still safer than trains or tankers. I’m sure the Oil company will clean it up and no wildlife or lives will be lost. Pink Floyd Moon Guitar. Michael Jurado I didn’t say 100 %. What would you recommend as a safer alternative for transporting oil?

Ray Archer, that simply is not true. Oil leaks and spills cannot be cleaned up completely, which allows it to do further damage to water and wildlife. Imagine the wildlife hurt or even killed before the leak was cleaned up. A great deal of damage can be done in a short period of time. Michael Jurado unless you live in a completely sterile environment, there will always be some degree of contamination from oil.
Why be concerned about eliminating the last “molecule” of it when it poses no threat? It sounds like you’re splitting hairs genius. Ray Archer, start supporting investments in clean renewable energy. We won’t have to rely completely on the transportation of oil. Summer Hubbard only 100% of planes, 100% of trucks, and 98% of cars still run on fossil fuels. This is why we still need pipelines today. There goes 2,500 sq yds to the condemned category. Good thing it did not happen closer to the river. Pink Floyd Moon Guitar. The whole center of the US would be condemned and all the river provides all south through Texas. This is why it was protested! Wait until it’s in the back yard or water supply of someone that pushed it through!! Heard it soaked into a wetland.. that would only mean more than 2,500 square yards were soaked! 9,120 barrels of oil equals to 401,280 gallons of tar sand crude!
