Thanks, Cal.
Wondering if journalists/reporters are able to sue for being barred....although the same thing happened with the Gulf Geyser.

And the courts are also complicit. Exxon has succeeded in getting a no fly order so that even aerial photos unobtainable. .Edward Murrow and Walter Cronkite are rolling in their graves.

This is B.S. They can't really hide this one, though. Thanks, Cal.

When you have no real means of cleaning up the crap and have not designed anything new in more than 60 years you sure as hell do not pictures of piles of industrial grade paper towels as your state of the art clean up technology.

They need to stop doing that and let the press cover it.

of course they are doing their best "damage control". they want to keep this out of sight, and hopefully out of mind. it doesn't look good for all those people claiming that KXL is safe, so they want to cover up this story.

let's not let them get away with it. share widely.
