Pipeline Spills - Quotes
Well, now we know, in advance, thanks to yesterday's pipeline break in Alberta, what will be said WHEN the Northern Gateway pipeline, with it's especially toxic brew of solvents and tar sand's bitumen, spills into the Salmon bearing streams and coastal waters of B.C.
We recieved these quotes from that future spill from the officials in Alberta on the occasion of the 2nd spill into Glennifer Lake, and the 2nd spill this year by the same company.
Here is what we will hear:
"Sometimes strange things can happen that are beyond their control so that will be part of our investigation.”
"it’s unfortunate but there are always effects, such as oil spills, that come with economic development"
"It's actually an exception, we have hundreds of pipelines across this province"
- those from the energy regulator, and the Premier, of Alberta.
And, predictably, we will hear those same empty phrases from B.C.'s officials when the Gateway Pipeline breaks... the only way to ensure it does not break is to deny permission to build it.
What good does it do to hear, or say, that there are other pipelines that DIDN'T leak, and that strange things happen?
In reality is it out of control, spills cannot be avoided, and more pipelines should not be built as we transition off of fossil fuels. Financial resources must go towards renewable and sustainable energy now.
