Chris Hayes covered yet another toxic oil mess in this video: Arkansas pipeline rupture foreshadows devastating environmental impact, but Exxon won’t pay taxes to cleanup fund.
Three days after an Exxon pipeline in Central Arkansas burst and soaked the town of Mayflower in thousands of barrels of crude oil, the cleanup is ongoing. At last count, 12,000 barrels of tar sands oil and water have been dumped on the small town.
So it goes without saying that my buddy Andy Cobb was all over it. He produces videos o' snarkitude like nobody else. Watch, laugh, enjoy...
"Exxon has revolutionized the way fuel gets to YOU! We'll pump that s*** right down your driveway."
"Wherever you're going, we're already there."
Andy did it again. That. Was. Awesome.
America's oil industry is terribly misunderstood. When a lot of people hear "364 pipeline spills in 2012" they think it's a big mess, like a nearly realized advent calendar of crap. What they fail to see is a revolutionary energy distribution system about to achieve NATIONWIDE COVERAGE.
And remember, that's not just gas or oil flowing through the streets of Arkansas--it's dilbit, the thick toxic hydrocarbon stew produced by tarsands. So roam wherever, and take your energy source with you! That s--t is sticky as hell, it's not like you're going to be able to get it off.
