Just so you know Ms Jackson, North Dakota went from the poorest state per capita to the second richest in two years.
The newly rich ND citizens would be pleased to fund your anti-California oil crusade. Russia and Saudi Arabia would too. They likely already are.

NG: How about Warren Buffet slipping $30 million to the Tides Foundation to headache the XL Pipeline? Then Mr Buffet (environmentalist that he is) bought up the BNSF railroad, and the Union Tank Car Co. BNSF car loadings went from 9,500 in 2009 to 450,000 in 2014. Talk about green.
Fund green-left causes, and no one investigates eh Mr Buffet?

How do we (really) know how much oil was released in the first place? We are only getting guess-timates on the release volume, and volumes hauled off in various media like water, sand, seaweed, etc, etc.
So lets not embarrass ourselves. Lets not subtract one wild a__guess from another. . then gleefully shout; 'j'accuse! 80,000 gallons are missing! ,

Juan:Assuming you dont approve of hydroelectric power, renewables (ie solar and wind) account for only 6 percent of our energy needs. What shall we use in the meantime while renewables are being further developed?
Some dirt poor Central African countries use almost no oil. They bearly subsist. They (certainly) cant afford an UCSB education. Is it reasonable to ask the whole world become as wretched as them?

DavySince transitioning to 100 percent renewables will take awhile, what do use (for energy) in the meantime?

How can the green left imagine 'renewables' are an alternative to oil? The Obama administration (no less) informs us that solar, wind, and biofuels combined supply only 6% of our needs.
A lack of advocacy you may say. Hardly. Opposition by Big Oil you say. Hardly again. Big oil is the biggest subsidizer of 'alternatives'.
The green left seeks to cut everyone else's energy use by 94%, to (um) save the earth. Kind of like Ted Danson and Al Gore.

Tawny:We get a flurry of keyboard experts on any big oilfield event. These self-appointed authorities are awesome. They can hurl sudden 'determinations' from a distance, with no data.
What ever would we do without them?

The green left bangs on and on about magic valves, like they are the sudden experts.
PHMSA however isnt quite so sure. They say (after a considerable study) that automatic shutdown valves dont always work.
No matter. Hanna-Beth, Lois, and the other uber left pipeline experts will impose the magic valves.
