Oil… Bitumen… Crude… Isn’t it about time we learned?

Oil… Bitumen… Crude… Isn’t it about time we learned?

It’s all the same thing, regardless of labels and law. It doesn’t matter what we call it… a spill is a spill, whether it’s cause is deliberate or by accident.

It doesn’t matter that Exxon say 99.9995% of all crude transported doesn’t get spilled. It’s like the gun control argument, it’s the 0.0005% that causes the problems!!!

Exxon pledges ‘to cover all costs’ but I have to ask who knows what all the costs are? Did Exxon pledge to cover all the hidden costs or just the advertising costs, and the front line cleanup?

Clean that sh!t up, compensate the families in Arkansas handsomely and accept that you may get slapped with a hefty fine that should go to the sciences to help our planet develop green renewable energy!

Honestly, YOU the tax payer and YOU the vehicle owner will pay for Exxon’s spill no matter what the media says.

 

Arkansas oil spill: Exxon reacts to tax ‘loophole,’ pledges ‘to cover all costs’

The central Arkansas spill caused by Exxon’s aging Pegasus pipeline has reportedly unleashed 10,000 barrels of Canadian heavy crude – but a technicality says it’s not oil, letting the energy giant off the hook from paying into a national cleanup fund.

Legally speaking, diluted bitumen like the heavy crude that’s overrun Mayflower, Arkansas, is not classified as ‘oil’. And it’s that very distinction that exempts Exxon from contributing to the government’s oil spillage cleanup fund.

ExxonMobil has already confirmed that the compromised pipeline was transporting “low-quality Wabasca Heavy crude” from Canada’s Alberta region. That particular form of crude contains large quantities of bitumen – a “thick, sticky, black semi-solid form of petroleum which is transported in a diluted form (dilbit) as it makes its way from Canada to US refineries,” explains Oil Change International, which has brought attention on the strange legal exemption.
