What difference does that make? Who's talking about it?
That's the alternative to a pipeline, you fucking moron.

Wow, what an idiot you are. Pipes are sealed dumbassa
A pipeline such as Keystone with 18 foot pipes, there are about 600,000 oil seal under pressure of up to 1500psi. The lifetime of these seals is estimated as 15 years, yet there is no requirement that the operator, TC Energy replace them.

These are the largest leaks, however it estimated that there are over a thousand unreported leaks between 2010 and 2019 and total number gallons leaked exceeds a million.

October 31, 2019:
TransCanada’s (“TC Energy”) Keystone pipeline leaked at least 380,000 gallons of tarsand oil and toxic diluents that affected wetlands in northeastern North Dakota. No cause has yet been established.

November 16, 2017: Keystone pipeline leaks 407,000 gallons on farmland near Amherst, South Dakota. Spill was originally underreported as 210,000 gallons.

The simple fact you ignore is oil seals leak when they are under high pressure for number of years and metal weakens with corrosion.

Let’s say your post is accurate, wouldn’t another pipe line to have available for updates and fixes? Redundant is what that’s called

Not at a cost of over 5 billion dollars. Since most of the pipeline is below ground or water, many leaks are not discovered for days, weeks, and sometimes are never discovered. When a leak is discovered it doesn't usually take so long to fix that a secondary pipeline is needed.

I don't care how much money the oil companies spend as long it's not a serious threat to environment.
Global warming is a hoax, so none of it is a threat to the environment. However, axing the pipeline is a threat to the poor and the middle class.

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?
Idiotic babbling,,,

Would the Keystone pipeline benefit the United States?


Yet many experts agree that moving ahead with the pipeline wouldn't have prevented U.S. gas prices from climbing to a record high. Expanding the Keystone would have increased global oil production by less than 1%, an amount, they explained, is "almost negligible."

Building the Keystone pipeline and opening up the Tar Sands will negatively impact national and local economies: Burning the recoverable tar sands oil will increase the earth's temperature by a minimum of 2 degree Celsius, which NYU Law School's Environmental Law Center estimates could permanently cut the US GDP by 2.5 ...

What was the purpose of the Keystone pipeline?
It was expected to transport 830,000 barrels of Alberta tar sands oil per day to refineries on the Gulf Coast of Texas. From the refineries, the oil would be sent chiefly overseas—not to gasoline pumps in the United States.LMFOAO

You fucking moron -- I posted an image of a tar-sands leak from the Keystone pipeline and some idiot falsely claimed that image was of the Exxon Valdez mess.

Are you ever not a fucking moron?

Ever??

It doesn't matter what you posted. That photo has no label on it. It proves nothing.

I could be a picture of a lake of oil or a small puddle that contains a single barrel of oil. The foto includes no context. It's worthless horseshit like everything else you post.
