There is no environmental harm from the pipeling, moron. There's more harm from not building it than from building it. Which do you believe causes more environmental harm: 10,000 tanker trains full of crude oil or one pipeline?

Are you ever not a fucking moron?

Ever??

What "damage to the environment?" Who put you in charge of deciding whether it's worth it?
SPEAK ENGLISH
The takedown of the notorious Keystone XL (KXL) tar sands pipeline will go down as one of this generation’s most monumental environmental victories. After more than 10 years of tenacious protests, drawn-out legal battles, and flip-flopping executive orders spanning three presidential administrations, the Keystone XL pipeline is now gone for good. The project’s corporate backer—the Canadian energy infrastructure company TC Energy—officially abandoned the project in June 2021 following President Joe Biden’s denial of a key permit on his first day in office. But the path to victory wasn’t always clear. Many had hoped that the disastrous project was finally done for in November 2015, when the Obama administration vetoed the pipeline—acknowledging its pervasive threats to climate, ecosystems, drinking water sources, and public health. But immediately after taking office, President Donald Trump brought the zombie project back to life, along with the legal battles against it. By the time President Biden took office in 2021, ready to fulfill his campaign promise to revoke the cross-border permit, the dirty energy pipeline had become one of the foremost climate controversies of our time.https://www.nrdc.org/stories/what-keystone-pipeline

they don't own the pipe.

In the US, the pipeline is owned by the Koch Industries (Koch Brothers) and that company, if not the worst, has one of the worst safety records. Rather than fix the problems, it's cheaper for them to just pay the fines.

Your picture proves nothing, moron. Is that from a pipeline or from a train? You have no idea what caused that.

Where is the evidence that they have the worst safety records? You have no evidence for anything in your post other than the fact that you hate the Koch brothers.

All you proved is that you're an imbecile. The fact that environment imbeciles like you have been blubbering about for 10 years doesn't mean it's a bade idea. More than likely that means it's a good idea. How did that benefit the human race in any fashion?

The most devastating damage is to ground water which is not usually discovered for many years. By then ownership has changed and mergers and bankruptcies make it difficult difficult to determine who pays for the cleanup.

In the Alberta Artic Shadow facility, the cost of cleanup once the tar sand oil has been removed is estimated to cost more that the total revenue. Thus many of the large investors in tar sand oil production in Canada such as Chevron have exited from the business leaving it to smaller organizations that are more concerned with more immediate profits than the long term costs.

Leaks in a pipeline are detected quite quickly, and they seldom leak. Trains full of tank cars have accidents all the time. When a ship has an accident, the result is a catastrophe. There is no perfect solution. However, pipelines, by far, are the safest.

This was all so avoidable. But dems are more concerned with hurting Trumps legacy and the American worker than they are with having a stable economy.
They were also more interested in appeasing the far-left 'environmental' contingent of their own party.

But it’s not owned by them
