Thread Name: BS: Will Obama approve the XL pipeline?
Subject: RE: BS: Will Obama approve the XL pipeline?
There have been more off shore permits under Obama in the last 4 years than there were under the last 4 years of the Bush administration, pdq... Your bangin' on Obama ain't the issue here... What is at issue is the safety of the nation and not making Dick Cheney, or you, happy...

I've brought up Kansas City because it's the largest city that the oil will get to... You have talked about these "valves" that will minimize any spill... I asked you if you were prepared to advocate a valve every mile??? No answer... Do you have any idea what 40,000, 50,000, maybe 100,000 gallons of this stuff would do to Kansas City??? It would shut it down... It would be like a horror movie... The water supply would be history... It's ability to treat sewage would be history... Kansas City would, in essence, be history...

This can happen and I predict right here and now that if this pipeline is built something along this ***will*** happen... There's almost no way it can't... And the further south you go the more and more population centers will be at risk...
