Uhhh how can one shoot an underground pipeline?
NasCarNut...after reviewing a small bit of data from the trans-alaska pipeline, i can see where concern could be. it appears that only a small amount percentage wise has been lost iover time. however, the average shut-off time is 4 minutes within the 48" diameter pipe system. a great deal of loss can occur should there be a breach. several factors caused the breaches. vandalism, gun shots, valve or sensor failures...etc. there is also a fact page indicating the financial impacts tohe affected areas along the pipeline. i have yet to research further.
point taken, but the fact remains, Global warming is the reason for the opposition, as if
Stillhere - Your question would have been more all-encompassing if you'd asked, "Tankers (truck or rail) or pipelines". Either way, the answer IS STILL pipelines.
Quiz, which is more reliable, tankers or pipelines
Canda can and will pit that oil on ships if they need to, no stopping its release, we just give up the jobs
Enriching canda is far superior to enriching those that hate us, plus all the jobs to help our economy
Sure it does, what do you base that on? You do understand supply and demand right? The oil would be reilfined in our own refineries in texas and would drive down the cost of Arab oil.
this pipeline will proved canada the ability to pump their oil, send it through our land, down to the gulf, where it will be sold everywhere else...it doesn't have an impact on US gas prices...

Ask the Unions, they seem to think there will be tens of thousands of good jobs created
Again, to be clear, why would the U S want to construct this pipeline?
Yeah , like you need to immerse your pea brain in some more of that particular brand of brain washing conect! But go on little lemming be clueless all you want , its a free world !
wasteland may have been the wrong terminology
I agree, it's not wasteland...YET
Absolem, the fact is, when you cut through the non sense posted in opposition to the so called XL pipeline, it comes down to one thing, the belief in man made Global Warming.
NCN....even your local city planners deal with the "wastelands" in your communities. in retrospect...wasteland may have been the wrong terminology and just gave your mental pit-bull like grip something to latch on to. the pipeline while being an obvious potential hazard for many reasons also serves some good for many communities. i am as concerned about protecting the environment as well as the valued aquafers. we could have the oil continue to travel by way of rail or tanker. it would be interesting to look at the safety record of the rather extensive Alaskan pipeline for insight inot a real world situation. which admittingly i have yet to fully do. but i thought that would be a suitable comparison.
Let's all screw with Ohwiseone's little brain and check out the postings of North East Florida Tea Party on Facebook.
" liberal commies " now thats a hoot !
in western Michigan -- the site of what has become the most expensive onshore oil spill in U.S. history. Four years and a billion dollars later, tar sands contamination still plagues the Kalamazoo River and nearby communities.
pipeline spill would threaten the land and water supply of some 110,000 ranches and farms in Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska that produced more than $40 billion worth of food in 2012. In those three states alone, the pipeline would cross 1,073 rivers, lakes, and streams, including the Yellowstone River in Montana and the Platte River in Nebraska, along with tens of thousands of acres of wetlands. It would also run within a mile of more than 3,000 wells that provide drinking and irrigation water in those states.
there's plenty more reason that I find it not to be worth...
