  1. Enbridge’s next major disaster will be line 5 under the Mackinac straits. There are two already damaged and bent poorly supported pipelines with dings and coating missing that are carrying 22 million gallons of oil and natural gas liquids per day. These pipelines are 19 years past their life expectancy and will most definitely fail it’s just a matter of when.
    When it does happen there will be unprecedented permanent damage spread far and wide but heavily greased palms keep it running despite shutdown orders.

    • There are far too many corrupt people in this world that care not about ecological disasters or anything else for that matter.
