    I know it was said already,BP. The gulf still shows signs of all that fkn oil that's sitting somewhere. Waiting for the next big hurricane to stir it up. It's unfortunate,but it did make more precautions. Still won't bring back the people tho.

    I forgot that Liberal was a major party in your country, not just an ideology. As for the rest, we already discussed that the last time the pipeline came up.

    As for the risks, accidents, etc. mentioned by others, you're missing my point. We aren't going back to tallow candles and mules any time soon. We can either go into developments like this pipeline with our eyes open and try for the best, or just let the bastards do as they please. Either way, these mega-projects will continue to happen. It's up to us to do what we can to minimize that risk and keep measures in place to control it.

    Hangin' on the wall in my garage, or even on the tailgate of my truck, sure.

    Permanently on my back?

    I catch enough shit from Conservative Baptist mom over the ink I already have. It would put her in her grave if I showed up with that and told her that my wife is a Wiccan High Priestess.

    "In the B.C. legislature, the election also brought in a new anti-pipeline, anti-tanker voice: the province's first Green Party member of the legislative assembly, climate scientist Andrew Weaver — a fierce critic of oil-based economies."

    Is Weaver a fierce, pragmatic critic? Point being, if all someone does is scream NO! because Oil is Bad (or Whatever is Bad), they aren't solving anything. I firmly believe that migrating away from an oil-based economy is a worthy goal, but I know that viable alternatives need to be developed for that to happen. In the U.S., that critical step is often overlooked by some liberals/greens/environmentalists, and they lose credibility for that reason.

    BTW, I'm interested in what's going on with the pipeline and I want to hear it from you. I'm not interested in debating anything about it.

    Thanks. I'm not very concerned about appearances, but the DuraTracs do improve the look of the truck. I haven't driven on them with a load or offroad, but they feel better than the OEM Rugged Trails. Shocker, I know.

    Weaver is a climate scientist who believes that global climate change and man's contribution to that is real and is opposed to the pipelines because of their enviornmental risk to our coastline from increasing tanker traffic on the south coast and in order to allow the Northern Gateway pipeline to go ahead , BC would have to lift a moratorium on tanker traffic on the Northern coast of BC

    I agree with both these positions

    Weaver does not represent the riding I live in though , our riding elected an NDP candidate

    That sounds reasonable. I'm sure the moratorium was put in place for good reason. If there's to be a pipeline, the petitioning companies need to demonstrate how they'll address the concerns that led to the moratorium. The Greens should also make a good faith effort to offer alternate ways the resource could be utilized safely, or realistic ways to move Canada away from an oil economy. In the U.S., those discussions typically get bogged down in ideology and unrealistic plans on both sides of an environmental issue. I hope Canadians have better luck working it out.

    The moratorium was put into place in the 1970's because the waterways in the inner passage of the North Coast is just too treacherous

    Sounds to me like the Oil Folks need to figure that out or scrap the project. Building a terminal completely off the coast seems like the obvious answer, but that won't be cheap. It would also probably be subject to some hellacious weather.

    You added a little earlier about the climate change debate. I think the issue is largely irrelevant because what people believe to be true doesn't matter. Earth will continue on with or without us. Humans should put serious effort into minimizing the damage we do to our planet, and migrating away from fossil fuels is the smart move.

    I don't particularly like nuclear power as it stands, but it's the single best energy source we have right now. None of the alternative, clean power schemes come close to competing with fission, yet. Until fusion is mastered (or something else), I'd like to see all of the ideological BS get shoved aside for a worldwide effort to design & build modern, reliable, fission plants. Pair that with improvements in other critical areas (batteries, transportation, power grids), and humans could put a huge dent in our output of pollution, and be on the right track for a low emission, electric economy based on fusion, wind, geothermal, photovoltaic, concentrated solar power, etc.
