When is EM going to be accountable for damaging our earth for profits? Or are they so powerful they are above the law! I guess it's the latter.

I hear the trout fishing is great on that river. When does the season open? Besides oily fish cooks better in the pan. Is that sweet lite crude in the pipe? How did it break open? Did the Army Corp of Engineers flag it off?

"Brent Peters, the fire chief for the city of Laurel about 12 miles west of Billings, said the rupture in the 12-inch diameter pipe occurred late Friday about a mile south of Laurel."

There needs to be a law that all pipelines must be above ground so they can be monitored.
