If Tillerson is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Exxon Mobil’s abhorrent decision to prioritize short-term oil profits over humankind’s shared future will become the shared policy of two of the world’s great powers.
Why the hell… Is this on my dash? Pipelines are safer, huh? *snip*
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, which oversees the industry, there have been nearly 5,600 pipeline incidents over the last 20 years that have been deemed “significant". By the definition adopted by the DOT, a “significant incident” means the leak resulted in either a fatality or injury requiring in-patient hospitalization, had an impact of $50,000 or more in total costs (measured in 1984 dollars), resulted in the release of highly volatile liquids of five barrels or more (or other liquid releases of 50 barrels or more), or liquid releases resulting in an unintentional fire or explosion.
The numbers for truck/train are even worse. So like, I get that it’s not something that’s going to happen overnight, but how about instead of facilitating oil delivery, we start moving away from oil altogether? We have electric cars. We have a bunch of options for green energy production. Let’s do some of that. And in the meanwhile please feel free to shove your propaganda straight up your ass.
Protesters In Keokuk, Iowa Rallying Against The Dakota Access Pipeline
Author’s Note: I sincerely wish these people all the luck in the world. I cannot tell you how depressing it was to traverse down those familiar county roads suddenly dug up and completely unfamiliar. This town especially is one oil spill away from being wiped off the map entirely. And that’s not hyperbole. These small towns in Iowa don’t have the commercial interest that the large cities on the coasts do. One freak tragedy is all it would take.
An anonymous follower asked if gasoline ever spoiled, considering gasoline derives it root from the dead and decayed. An enthralling question, to which i didn’t know the answer to.
But i did a bit of research and here is what i found. ( This is not a furnished answer by any standard, feel free to add along )
YES! Gasoline does spoil!
And it takes a couple of months to do so. There are a couple of reasons as to why it spoils:
Oxidation: Hydrocarbons present in gasoline react with the air that is existent in the tank. This leads to the degradation of the fuel.
Evaporation: Gasoline is a
mixture of volatile, flammable liquid hydrocarbons derived from petroleum.
The most highly volatile components in gasoline also tend to evaporate
over time. As they do, the remaining fuel’s volatility and ability to
combust properly degrades. The less volatile the fuel, the less
effectively it burns in your engine.
* Other fuels such as Diesel also do spoil, but they take longer!
stabilisers are available for helping preserve fuel if you’re storing
your car or lawnmower for long periods.
