Politics Skew Pipeline Safety Truths

(43 minutes) How many rail cars would it take to replace a 10 inch pipeline? How many more trucks would you see on the road? The safety and efficiency of pipelines often take a back seat to the politics of those who disapprove of the fossil fuels they transport. Listen to the podcast to hear Tina Beach, CHS Public Awareness Specialist and Chair of the Montana Liquid and Gas Pipeline Association, discuss facts surrounding pipeline safety and efficiency, the multiple uses of petroleum in today’s society, events that led to new technologies and safety measures, reporting requirements, and other issues in this Pipeline 101 edition of Voices of Montana.
