But what if what we're really doing is actively blocking all safety measures attempted? Such as shipping things by a safer method?If we want to avoid accidents like this we have to make those causing it accountable for not making investments in safety measures.
Nobody has the "individual right" to block a pipeline going in somewhere that doesn't affect them (ie, not on their land) As for profitable, rail shipment is the least profitable alternative, no company WANTS to ship by rail, they do it because the cheaper AND SAFER method is barred to them.What we shouldn't do to prevent accidents by a company who hasn't invested in safety is forego others' individual rights to allow for more profitable alternatives.
I won't even respond to your "example" because it is so far out of touch with anything discussed here as to be irrelevant.
Actually you have said to stop it, implicitly by saying that they should stop shipping it by rail, but ALSO saying they shouldnt' ship it by pipelines, magic fairy dust isn't a viable shipping option.I'm not saying stop the flow oil. I'm saying stop externalizing it's costs and risks and just run it like a business.
I've been doing that from the start. I'm waiting for a return in kind.And let's use logic in conversation, it's way more fun.
