Double walled tanker cars that are crash rated should be a requirement for transporting this type of volatile crude oil. It is for the transportation of other hazardous material. Sadly, based on our past history it will likely take a horrific disaster involving fatalities within the United States before anything gets done. It should not be that way. Another good reason to build more pipelines.

I am completely against the Keystone pipeline. It is for Canada's crude. Not for us. But with that said if it is proven safer then rail, and it's for our use only. Then ok.

The federal government has derailed every attempt to build pipelines as a part of their energy policy to reduce energy use through higher prices. Pipelines are much safer, less volatile, and cleaner for the environment. The government should be promoting development not preventing it. Another example of just how out of touch the Washington establishment is.

Former GOP, if you knew that about 25% of the capacity of the proposed Keystone pipeline would/will be carrying ND/MT crude, would that change your mind? I'm thinking it wouldn't. But that is the plan. Why do so few know that?

But that is the plan. Why do so few know that? ```````````Did you know all crude piped through the planned pipe heads straight out of the USA? I said pipe lines for our use only.
