The only surprise here is that it has taken this long to reach this point!

No revelation to me.  The Michigan Legislature cannot even pass insurance reform.  I'm surprised they can even think positively.

A very good video on what could happen if one of those old pipes on the bottom of the straits were to leak!

They will study it and postulate until it busts and then blame each other while Rome burns.  It's gonna bust, take that as book.

Snyder rejects advice to shut down Line 5
« Reply #129 on: January 30, 2018, 09:30:58 AM »

Why bother studying it if you're not going to follow the advice of the study?

Certainly seems like a total waste of 'taxpayer' $$$   :( :( :(

Taxpayer money is 'funny money. so wasting it is just fine because it wasn't their's in the first place.  As with all things political and money. a bit of common sense would save the taxpayers a bundle, but, that is asking too much I guess.

Interesting...

I knew there were politics involved in Line 5 but didn't figure the Ruskies would have an interest!

Interesting.  Another day closer to failure while the politicians postulate.

A photo of the 'blue ice' shelfing up in the straits over the last week.  This photo is within a half mile of where Line 5 reaches the lower peninsula.  Imagine what a few million barrels of crude oil would look like mixed in there :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o
