Keystone Pipeline Leaks 210,000 Gallons Of Oil In South Dakota

Well, Trump WAS right that the Keystone Pipeline would create more jobs. Jobs to clean up more oil spills…

From CNN:

“A total of 210,000 gallons of oil leaked Thursday from the Keystone Pipeline in South Dakota, the pipeline’s operator, TransCanada, said.

Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday morning, and officials are investigating the cause of the leak, which occurred about three miles southeast of the town of Amherst, said Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the state’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources.”

Remember that the main reason why the Sioux Indians were protesting the creation of the Keystone Pipeline was because they didn’t want their drinking water from the Missouri River to be contaminated.

Supporters of the pipeline argued that the protesters’ objections were ludicrous, since Energy Transfer Partners took “extraordinary measures” to safeguard against disaster.

Time to get out the popcorn (again) folks. I predict that this will reopen the floodgates on environmental protests.
