Yellowstone River Hit by Oil Line Break: Over 42,000 Gallons
Leaking Below Billings Montana
Well another oil pipeline broke, this one in the Yellowstone River. The oil is
everywhere. Who owns the pipeline? Who do you think--- Exxon. The damage is extensive. Much of the damage will
be long-term. The so-called plan that Exxon had in case of emergency failed again. Haven't we heard this before!
The governor is now thinking of suing Exxon.
How many god damn streams must we destroy before we put these people out of business in terms of running things
in this country. Do you know how much money will be lost from this so-called accident? How many layers of income
out West have been destroyed? How many people will suffer because of this? The damage to the Yellowstone River is
extensive including massive ecological destruction. Where's the EPA? Were the Montana Department of natural
The same thing occurred with BP in the Gulf. It was a complete cover-up. The oil
away it went to the bottom of the Gulf. The benthic organisms are now assimilating those poisons into the food
chain. BP had a plan. None of these plans work. They are based on a BCS known as a best case scenario. I've read
the stupid plans for over 25 years and none of them will work. Government agencies allow them to be written in this
manner. It's just a fucking lie, a total fucking lie.
We live in a corporate fascist military industrial police state. There will not be a stream left unless this
insanity stops. And only you can stop this insanity. If not you will destroy every river and stream in this
country. Unfortunately many of the fly fishermen today don't deserve the name fly fisherman in my
estimation because unlike Charlie Fox, Schweibert, and others you stand for nothing in the face of the destruction
of your own waters.
Some stupid fly anglers are saying it's okay because it's actually below Billings and the best trout fishing is
above. That makes no difference because many warmer water species will die including some threatened sturgeon. Of
course, Exxon lied by saying they got to it in 6 minutes and shut it off. Wrong, they let it leak for over a hour.
It looks like around 42,000 gallons of oil hit for 40 miles downstream. It started 17 miles west of Billings in the
town of Laurel, Montana. The EPA is now there after many residents got sick from the oil. Of course, the EPA is
testing everything and it's okay! Just like they tested everything at the World Trade Center and all those men and
women died when they said the air quality was okay to work in! You know how to tell when the EPA is lying? When
their lips move! This will be another fucking cover up.
