  1. The Keystone Pipeline leak in South Dakota shows that pipeline leaks are greater than the leaks from oil leaks from train cars and trucks. With the the latter, you know exactly how much leaked. However, with pipeline leaks you never know how much leaked, since the leaks are not discovered quickly.

    This an excellent reason why pipelines should be opposed and stopped.
