Feigned Hysteria Over Keystone Pipeline Leak

A lot of people are hyperventilating over a recent oil spill in the original Keystone pipeline, authorized under the George W. Bush administration and completed in June 2010, under our Temp Agency President's term. In what I presume to be the first major leak in over seven years, 210,000 gallons of oil was spilled. For comparison, that's about six DOT-111 rail cars.

For all the concerns about spillage into waterways, may I remind you that many rail tracks run parallel to rivers in this country? And contrary to pipelines, which actually have a smaller carbon footprint transporting the oil, trains are given to derailment and are prone to catch fire, sending voluminous clouds of carbon laden smoke into the atmosphere.

I have video from one such derailment below. Unless you are willing to give up all oil based transportation, products made from and transported by petroleum (Hint: everything), then pipelines are the safest, most environmentally friendly means of transporting oil.

And did we happen to mention that no one was killed as a result of the Keystone pipeline leak? Ah, yes, then there's that! The biggest downside is that billionaire Warren Buffet, big Obama contributor, will see less traffic on his railroad, and the price of Bakken crude will drop five to ten dollars a barrel.

Wait! Did I say that was the downside? We report, you decide!
