TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline is still in the news: Congress debates it and the President threatens to veto it, all the while Enbridge has not only begun to expand its existing pipelines to carry the Tar Sands across our border at volumes equal to or greater than Keystone XL, but also has received new permitting from the Obama Administration for more! Steve Horn of DeSmogBlog.com joins us to discuss that and how the infamous oil-carrying rail cars that have detonated repeatedly have been allowed to continue rolling. All that and more for TMI Saturday January 31, 2015, airing live at noon Central on WSUM 91.7 FM or via live stream at http://wsum.org/ – tune in for your Cure for the Common Media!
Embridge has a Keystone XL clone; you’ve known that for over a year now, if you’ve been listening to TMI. Pipeline 61 is a leg of it, running right though Dane County, and Embridge wants to triple the load of tar sands bitumen pushed through it. For Dane County Supervisor Patrick Miles, it’s a bit too much of a risk, considering that Dane County has a pumping station for it, so at the next Dane County Supervisory Board meeting, they will be discussing what regulations should be imposed on that facility. Embridge is, of course, upset. Patrick Miles joins us today to discuss the situation.

Steve Horn of DeSmogBlog.com has been working all summer on a five-party series that shows how the focus on Keystone XL, while good in many ways, has distracted us from the efforts of Enbridge and the Federal Government to create what amounts to a clone of the dreaded KXL. He joins us by phone to go over what’s been going on while we were enjoying the halcyon days.
Then, Jin-Ho Yoon of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington is more concerned about winter. A study he coauthored had found that the Polar Vortex phenomenon that plagued is here in the U.S. last year may become the new normal, thanks to how arctic sea ice has been steadily disappearing.

DeSmogBlog’s Research Fellow Steve Horn has been busy as ever reporting on how TransCanada’s Keystone XL is flowing – in the southern end, how Enbridge has more tar sands bitumen pipelines ready to go, and how “Bomb Trains” – that is, trains that carry oil in easily combustible tanker cars – are rolling through many cities near you, including Milwaukee! Think they aren’t that big a deal? Ask the residents of Lynchburg, Virginia, where one caught fire and spilled its flaming contents into the James River!
