CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

How to build a pipeline? State Department’s Environmental Impact Statement includes cartoonish graphic seemingly made for children.

The Keystone XL Pipeline will deliver billions of gallons of oil from Alberta, Canada to coastal refineries in Texas. The oil will be pumped through one very long pipeline, and will most likely be sold to foreign countries.

Thousands of people’s properties have been ‘condemned’ to build this line. It spans two countries, several states, and countless forests, farms, suburbs, Indian reservations, cities, rivers, lakes, and mountains. The above cartoon is a ridiculous, nefarious joke. Obama is expected to approve the line in coming months.

  12. poopquotes said: The horribleness of the pipeline aside. In that graphic, it says they will backfill BEFORE pressure testing. That is the worst thing you could possibly do. They will have to spend so much money and time to dig it up to make repairs.
