Build a potentially environmental disaster pipeline on your own property or build it on someone else's property. Gee
We're you just having a fit because of a refining capabilities?
But hey, lets transport this toxic goo over our major river system to refine it in Texas & allow the pollution to drift across our country.
I have an idea, let the Canadians build the refineries & transport something not as toxic or dangerous.
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.
