    will be in clean-up and habitat restoration when the inevitable pipeline ruptures happen.

    •  Yeah, what could go wrong? (0+ / 0-)

      Thick, heavy bitumen mixed with clay and sand, heated and pumped at high pressure like a huge wad of sandpaper through a long welded steel pipe. I just got the same call, DG. Except for gender, I repeated your answers word for word.

      Now, if only the existing pipeline would fail spectacularly before they get their damned permit!

      Float like a manhole cover, sting like a sash weight! Clean Coal Is A Clinker!

    •  They didn't tell me a thing about those jobs (0+ / 0-)

      except that there would thousands of them.  The recorded voice didn't say well paying.  Just that there would be a lot of jobs.  Funny, no study or anything else to back up this claim.  I don't know if they meant in building the pipeline or cleaning up after it was built.
