    This is at the heart of the problem, and it’s a stinker. Judge Jackson is, IMHO, a corporate whore. Nowhere has President Obama been more of a disappointment than on environmental issues, whether drilling, fracking, this m*th#rf^ck!ng pipeline, or GMO and its runoff (water’s full of glyphosate, friends).

    Btw, pipelines carrying bitumen ALWAYS rupture, fracture, or otherwise leak this sh!t onto/into the land and water. It’s the nature of bitumen, which is highly corrosive. Technology to pipe this junk safely simply doesn’t exist, or, if it does, would cost so much that it will never be used. I’m enraged and outraged, and you should be, too.
