So toxic & volatile are now the same thing?<quoted text>
You goddam idiot, those goddam oil sands aren't right on the Canadian - US border. They have to build a thousand miles of pipeline in Canada, anyway.
And, you really haven't got a clue what comes out of a chemical plant into a pipeline, do you? Maybe you should learn something about this before you say something really, really stupid like "transport something not as toxic or dangerous."
The least toxic substance is what goes into a refinery or chemical plant through a pipeline. What comes out through a pipeline, now, that's something you really don't want to transport across a few thousand miles of pipeline. That's why those pipelines are very short, from the chemical plant to the dock.
The least toxic substance is gasoline, which is more volitile than crude oil.
You're running out of excuses, dufus. Come with something else.
The dilbit from the tar sands is more toxic than conventional crude.
Keep guessing, dumbass.
Oh BTW, the pipes running to the docks are shorter because that is where they built the GD refineries.
