Enbridge tar sands pipeline has ruined two Michigan towns
Enbridge tar sands pipeline - the same one that is being extendeed through East Texas - has ruined two Michigan towns by spilling over 800,000 barrels of the toxic sludge according to a recent New York Times article. It has been 3 years and Enbridge has not completed the clean up. The towns still struggle to survive. Texas residents should learn from this and respond accordingly when Seaway sends them a letter attempting to take their land by eminent domain.

Yup, and their construction practices while laying the $&%# thing aren't so great, either. It runs less than a quarter mile from my home in the woods of East Texas, and they twice managed to set our forest on fire. Instead of doing as most developers in the forest out here -- calling a timber company, having them cut the timber for cash and doze the slash into the center to burn (far from adjoining forest), these idiots just came in, pushed down whole trees and shoved them off to the edges, AGAINST living forest, and set them on fire. Pine and sweetgum burn hot and fast, and oak, hickory, and walnut burn long. With only volunteer fire departments to protect us, it was a dangerous picture. However, Weyerhouser (not favorites, either, but...) has a nearby plantation of pine, so after the first incident, their Chinooks or whatever stayed loaded and ready to air-drop water to protect their forest, protecting ours, as well. Our sheriff's dept really loved having Darryl Hanna to shove around for a bit, too.
