For the 2nd time in 2 years the Keystone pipeline has had a major leak.

In Nov 2017 it leaked 210,000 gallons of crude in South Dakota.

Now 380,000 to 390,000 gallons in North Dakota Tuesday and yesterday.

Here's a picture of the leak. It was estimated to have impacted half an acre. I would assume that there are safeguards in place to automatically shut down the line in the event of a pressure drop from a leak. So hopefully the environmental impact from leaks like this will never be too extensive.

One small cattle ranch or dairy farm prduces enough cattle farting and belching to doom the universe, very surprised that some demented sociology prof at OSU hasn’t had a drive by and thinned out the herds, of course that would use Sen Warrens favorite weapon the bow and arrow.
