Actually, there are two words missing from a Journal Sentinel pro-pipeline editorial:
Kalamazoo and River.
That's where the pipeline company Enbridge, which has considerable Wisconsin operations, spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil - - in 2010 - - and the cleanup isn't done yet:
The Environmental Protection Agency will not extend the December 31 deadline it gave Enbridge Energy to finish dredging oil from portions of the Kalamazoo River. In March the EPA ordered Enbridge to remove up to 18,000 gallons of submerged oil by the end of the year.
More on the propensity of these pipelines to leak, here - - and note that one expert has predicted that the Keystone XL pipeline - - a project proposed by another pipeline company, TransCanada, will cross the largest United States underground water supply beneath the Great Plains carrying more than 800,000 barrels of thick tar sand crude oil daily, could see 91 spills over fifty years of operations:
[John] Stansbury notes that TransCanada, in its estimates, sees the possibility of 11 serious spills on the pipeline during the course of 50 years. He argues existing data suggests a more realistic estimate would be 91 accidents during that half century.
When you say Keystone, think Kalamazoo.
