thank you for your lucid comments on the fuel tax and htf. i always enjoy the facts you present. though i rarely agree with your conclusions, they do present a myriad of arguements for spirited discourse. thanks for your incites.

Hey DP. Haven't seen what you wrote yet. I posted UK article in response to an article posted a couple of days ago that was hyping the warming myth.

Oh, sorry. Got distracted. Regarding the Corker thread. In answer to your reply to me, no it didn't help. I've bookmarked the thread, and will try to study the EIA site to try and figure it out. I see there is a place there to submit questions, and I will try getting an explanation from them, but it will probably some time since I'm bogged down with real life stuff.

Ummm, homemade Gumbo, you're making me hungry!

The wording in the actual OPA states what you said but left out the terms "into or upon navigable waters or adjoining shoerlines". It would not cover inland spills. That also explains why you are getting the info from the coast guard site. Look up the actual legislation.

DP, I see that you have upset the delicate internal balance of another liberal idealogue here on GB. Keep it up!

by Safari7350  Jan 11, 2015

Maybe you can just point out the exact wording that says TransCanada is responsible for spills. In fact the OPA 1990 does not apply to Keystone.

Good job on "webwayne". It's funny that if you were to tell a liberal (just repeat 3 times) that eggs cause blindness, they'd be protesting at hen houses.

Sorry, the white board ran everything together and cut off the rest of the first paragraph of the Oil Pollution Act here it is, I hope. From the Oil Pollution Act of 1990: §2702. Elements of liability (a) In general Notwithstanding any other provision or rule of law, and subject to the provisions of this Act, each responsible party for a vessel or a facility from which oil is discharged, or which poses the substantial threat of a discharge of oil, into or upon the navigable waters or adjoining shorelines or the exclusive economic zone is liable for the removal costs and damages specified in subsection (b) of this section that result from such incident.

Last two sentences make sense. Under current law, oil sands imported into the U.S. are not subject to the excise tax on crude oil that pays for the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, which is used to cover the cost of cleanup from a spill. Garamendiā€™s amendment would require that TransCanada contribute to the Fund. 730,000 bls not taxed. US taxpayers on the hook for the spills. Will be anyway, without litigation.
