  •   On The Dilbit Disaster - 2nd cited post above (6+ / 0-)

    All of the comments above relate to the Boston Marathon bombing, but I found The Dilbit Disaster citation much more interesting.

    The link provided in the citation is just an ad for Amazon - here is a much more informative link about the spill of more than one million gallons of dilbit (diluted bitumen) into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan in 2010.

    Dilbit is what will be carried in the proposed XL pipeline. It is way more nasty than the descriptions I have been able to find up until I saw the article I linked to.

    Existence always was and always will be.

      It's not just an ad for Amazon. It's the book that resulted from the reporting that won the Pulitzer.

        ...but if you are looking for information, as I was, the link doesn't provide much info. The article I linked to was actually written by one of the authors of the book and provides immediate info for those that don't want to go through all the hoops at that link.

        Existence always was and always will be.
