Water is a Finite Resource, and must be protected for now and future generations . Suggests have been made that pipeline critics should try and live without oil and those productsderived from oil, when they express grave concerns about pipelines and pollution to water sources.Reported pipelines leaks / ruptures / etc. are averaging 4-6 on a weekly basis. Many occur very close to or in water.The unreported ones are unknown. How precious is our water? How soon we forget ?Only recently, as this article refers, Prince Albert, SK. declared a local state of emergency when 200,000 litres of oil from a Husky Energy pipeline leaked into the North Saskatchewan River, polluting their water source for drinking.No, in this day and age, it would be quite a challenge to live without oil.But what about our water? No challenge or problem there, as without clean water to drinkhuman life might exist for up to one week! The End
