Exxon: Ruptured pipeline carried tar sands crude

Exxon: Ruptured pipeline carried tar sands crude: "

Reuters reports this bombshell:

Exxon Mobil said on Friday that a pipeline that failed two weeks ago, leaking oil into the Yellowstone River, routinely transported a heavier and more toxic form of crude than the company and federal regulators initially acknowledged.

Gosh, who would have ever imaginedthat an oil company and regulators would mislead the public on the details surrounding a major spill — see The Only Thing Missing from Yellowstone Spill is Joe Barton Apologizing to Exxon.

This spill should be the nail in the coffin for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline — see As America’s “Last Best River” Suffers Through Exxon Spill, Experts Warn of Risks from Keystone XL Pipeline.
