  •  Thanks Roger resident pipeline expert (12+ / 0-)

    According to Greenpeace the 3 fuses for the carbon bomb are the three pipelines. Keystone XL, Endbridge Northern Gateway, and Kinder Morgan.

    Kinder Morgan is already built but they are building one parallel or something? They want Vancouver to dredge its harbour to accommodate super tankers to pick up the bitumen. KM turned Vancouver into a bitumen terminal without permission from the people of Vancouver, now they want to endanger the Burrard Inlet and BC coastal waters with super tankers. I've read reports that the KM's tanks in their Burnaby tank farm leak on a regular basis.

    This is an American company, Kinder and Morgan are ex-execs of Enron who invested their severance pay into pipelines. They are now billionaires.

    I hope the people of BC and Vancouver can block the dredging of the harbour. The Feds no longer control our harbours, they are under the control of local authorities and private/public companies.

    Burnaby Terminal
    The Burnaby terminal is the terminus of the TMPL mainline. It receives both crude oil and refined products for temporary storage and distribution through separate pipelines to local terminals, a refinery and the Westridge marine terminal. The Burnaby terminal has 13 storage tanks with an overall volume of 250 000 m3 (1.6 million bbl).
