It wouldn't be quite so bad except that the stuff they
are shipping in tank cars and pipelines is pure toxic
sludge which poisons everything it touches. So when
there is a spill it's bad, real bad, and there will be spills..
It's meant to distract us, while Big Oil continues fracking across the country....and poisoning all our ground water....
